The Parish Council has made the difficult decision not to hold a Fireworks event this year. We spent considerable time trying to organise the event.
Rooksdown Firework event was designed for the benefit of the Rooksdown community and its’ residents.
However, putting on such a popular event brings with it significant organisational & logistical challenges … particularly, how to get residents and visitors in and out of Rooksdown safely (which has been illustrated in the comments in this Facebook thread already). There was also a distinct lack of any volunteers from the community to help make this a safe and enjoyable event for all.
The Parish Council realises this will be a huge disappointment to residents but would like to thank residents for their continued support.
