Alas this year there’s no community bonfire bit due to the excessive cost of insurance for the bonfire.
As in previous years the event is taking place at the back of the shops on Winster Mews, with the car park making a great grandstand to watch the action from.
In place of the bonfire, this year we have fire dancers in addition to the fireworks and there will also be stalls and Cafe Jericho is open late.
Also because of the event there will be a road closure in effect from 6.00pm until 8.00pm for the stretch of Melandra Castle Road that passes the back of the shops.
This means that the last journeys on the 394 / 341 will not run around the ring road, only calling at the nearest stop in use, which is the stop on Glossop Road, just near the top entrance on to Melandra Castle Road.
In addition the car park at the back of the shops is also closed, as it is used as the ‘grandstand’ for the event.
If the event is finished earlier it may be possible to open the road earlier.
Whilst there’s no bonfire this year, your still be guaranteed a warm reception and a great evenings entertainment, and if you’re not sure what to expect, you can see details and pictures from last years by clicking here.
