FIREWORK parties were held in Giltbrook and Kimberley to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night last weekend.

Teachers at Kimberley Primary School and Gilthill Primary School organised displays and a bonfire party was put on at Kettlebrook Lodge by the Kimberley Scouts.

Gilthill Primary raised £700 through their event.

PTA member Sam Roper said: “It was absolutely brilliant. We had over 400 people and the fireworks were out of this world.

“Everyone said they had a wonderful evening. The kids were shouting and screaming – they had a whale of a time.”

Kids made lanterns for the event and there was a best dressed guy competition that was won by brother and sister Evie and Charles Gilbourne.

It was the 24th year the Kimberley Scouts have held a bonfire party and disco at Kettlebrook Lodge. Next year they are planning a big celebration to mark the 25th year.

The group made over £1,000, which will go towards the upkeep of Kettlebrook Lodge.
