Brockham Bonfire Celebrations,
Saturday 3rd November 2019

Building of the annual Brockham Bonfire will begin this year on Sunday 23rd September. Come and watch the ‘Pole going up’ at around 10.00am and witness the beginning of the bonfire festivities. Please see the article in this Parish News about Bonfire Building Material.

BROCKHAM BONFIRE NEEDS YOU!! Why not come and join in the building fun? There’s lots to do for people of all ages and new friends to make. Just turn up – you know where we are at weekends. We also meet in the Village Hall every Wednesday evening at 20.30. Last year despite the wet weather we were again able to give away over £20,000 a tough target to beat this year, but with your support and dry weather anything is possible!

For the last few years many families and friends of Brockham Bonfire have sponsored Fireworks. This has been great fun, a new dimension to the fun of the evening in creating a fantastic family atmosphere and a great way of raising funds to cover our costs and of course a way of purchasing fireworks we could otherwise not afford. ‘Short sponsor messages’ will be announced over the PA system on Bonfire Night. All Sponsors who notify us of their intentions with a message before the end of September 2019 will see their message printed in the Bonfire Brochure and be placed on the Brockham Bonfire Web site. This will enable you to write a slightly longer message if you wish – up to 50 words.

If you want to sponsor a firework please:

Send us your short message for the Brochure and if you wish an additional longer message for the web sites
Your name and phone number
Your donation for sponsorship, a minimum of £25.00 please
