Thanks to all the lovely people of Alresford for supporting the Alresford Rotary Fireworks

 

It was a very mild and rainy night on November 1st when once again Arlebury Park was the venue for what many consider to be mid Hampshire’s unrivalled bonfire and firework display commemorating early 17th century tensions and discontent with Parliament. The Rotary Club of Alresford thanks all who contributed in any way to the evening. Have a look at www.alresfordrotary.co.uk for the names of just some of the people who help make this annual event so special.

The numbers attending the procession down West Street and the event were somewhat lower than in previous years meaning that this year it will not be Alresford Rotary’s major source of charitable fund raising. Please let us have feedback via social media or by emailing: rotalresford@yahoo.com or even by talking to a Rotarian! How can the event be improved in future years? Why did you give it a miss this year? Was it the wrong date? Was it because you were away for half term? Was it because the weather was so uninviting? What did you (not) like? Thank you to everyone who attended.

Alresford Rotary has for over 20 years prided itself on putting on an event which is both part of Alresford’s community spirit and helps raise funds for those less fortunate than us. That aim continues and we look forward your helping us achieve those objectives on (provisionally) a cold and frosty night on 6th November 2020! In the meantime don’t forget to buy your Christmas tree(s) from us at the top of Broad Street from 8.00 a.m. on Saturday 7th December. Come early to avoid disappointment (cash only) for the best choice and once again to help us raise monies for local, national and international causes.

Thanks to all the lovely people of Alresford and District for supporting the Alresford Fireworks on a rainy evening.  We also like to thank the many friends of the Club who regularly turn out to help on occasions like this as we couldn't have run the event without you all. With your help we raise funds to support the local community and  good causes around the world.
