Braving the weather: Mildenhall fireworks display attracts a big crowd
The day’s rain did not bode well for an evening celebrating Guy Fawkes’ misguided attempt to interrupt Parliamentary proceedings. Miildenhall’s sports field at the east end of the village might have been pretty churned up for their firework display and bonfire on Thursday evening - that, as we all remember, was November 5 - but no one seemed to mind.
A big crowd defied the forecast and were rewarded with a dry display and a very large bonfire. It was, as one parent said, “A very well organised display.” It included some very spectacular fireworks - and soup and a BBQ. A treat for young and old alike.
