The annual Bonfire and Firework Display, held on Sunday 1st November on Filby Playing Field, was the culmination of a weekend celebrating the official opening of the new Village Hall.
Gates opened at 5pm, the Bonfire was lit at 6pm followed by fireworks at 7.00pm.
This year saw another bumper display - not only the usual November display, it included the fireworks planned for the August Bank Holiday Fete which had to be called off, due to heavy rain! A total of £2,000 worth of pyrotechnics were launched - not marred, too much, by local fog.
The children's rides, again, proved popular and the usual sale of hot food, soup and other refreshments was supplemented by the sale of sandwiches and deserts, surplus from the previous evening's celebrations.
Initial estimates suggested a record attendance - later confirmed as over 1,000 people.
Thanks to everyone who helped in any way.
The evening raised £1,800 for Playing Field funds. .
