Brockham Bonfire Celebrations, 8th November 2014

 

The pole has gone up and the bonfire boys and girls have been hard at work building this year’s bonfire. Once again we will be making collections around the village but please remember we cannot get to every house in the village on the same day! Unfortunately we are NOT able to collect or accept building material, concrete fence posts, grass cuttings, the rubbish from your garden shed and windfall apples! Please keep rubbish tidy and where possible put your tree loppings on a trailer provided. If it is full, please wait until we empty it.

 

Are you new to the village and want to become involved in the bonfire fun? Lots to do, new friends to make of all ages, 
you will find us on Brockham Green every weekend so please do come along and join in the fun – everyone is welcome. 
Just turn up. We also meet in the Village Hall every Wednesday evening at 20.00. Even if you can only spare an hour of
 your time on Bonfire Night we will appreciate your volunteering. If you and your family would like to join the front 
of the Torchlight Procession in fancy dress costumes are supplied by us, please do give Doreen a call. 
Last year we were able to donate over £20,000 to worthwhile causes in the local area. We hope to be able to raise even
 more this year and with your support and dry weather anything is possible!

 

If you are planning a house party on 8th November it is essential that you ask your friends; guests and relatives arrive at your homes by no later than 17.30. If you are having guests please start advising them of this now, they can of course use one of the car parks after this time.

 

Brockham Lane, Kiln Lane, the Borough Bridge, Old School Lane, Middle Street and Wheelers Lane will all close to all traffic at 17.30. This will mean that all the official road closures will come into force at the same time. This year, for safety reasons the road across the Green may remain closed until at least 23.00.

 

Passes may be issued to RESIDENTS of Brockham who genuinely cannot get home from work before the Road Closures come into effect at 17.30hrs on Saturday 8th November 2014. They are not issued for any other reason. These are STRICTLY for Residents, your guests are asked to arrive before this time or use one of the many car parks.

 

This year, where possible, passes will be e-mailed to you.
