Village Fireworks 2nd November

The Annual Village Fireworks Display is due to take place on Saturday 2nd November 2019 at the Recreation Ground, Wargrave.  Refreshments (tea, coffee, hot dogs, burgers, mulled wine, beer!) will be served from 5.30 pm, the Bonfire is lit ar 6pm, Fireworks start at 6.30pm.

The Scouts will be selling glow sticks and sweets.  A reminder that dogs and sparklers are not allowed.

We ask that a donation of at least £10 is made for a family of four.  This is our biggest annual fundraiser which enables us to purchase new and replace old equipment as well as fund our weekly programmes for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
