“The fireworks were amazing – there was so much colour. The display was one of the best I have seen and the bonfire was huge.”
– Georgia Shanahan, 11, Trowbridge
Friday’s annual event held on the village common, raised money for community groups and organisations in Broughton Gifford, and was hailed as the best ever. As well as the fireworks (which were set to music by Steve Jacobs of Flashpoint Fireworks) and bonfire, there was also a beer tent, a stall hosted by the local Scout group and a children’s roundabout to keep the revellers entertained.
Mike Bailey, a member of Broughton Gifford village hall committee, who has been helping organise the display for almost 30 years said the event was, “… the best ever, with record attendance.”
