Following on from last year’s successful family event, the much enjoyed fireworks display will be returning once again on 5 November 2019, starting at 4.30 pm with the fireworks planned to start at 6.30 pm.
We have listened to your feedback and with this in mind, we will be closing Lansdowne Road at the Doctor’s Surgery. A plan showing the nature of the road closure can be accessed here.The streets surrounding the Active Life Centre will only be accessible to residents or disabled badge holders. For those travelling from Quarrington Hill there will be parking at the Village Hall car park and we are currently looking at other options.
There will be stewards and security who will be directing traffic and pedestrians and monitoring the closed streets, so the event does not cause any more disruption to those living around the site than necessary.
Last year tickets were limited to only residents of Coxhoe and Quarrington Hill as this was our first experience of running this type of event in this location. This followed the advice we were given by the Safety Advisory Group. However, this proved to be a bit of a controversial decision with neighbouring villages in locations outside the Parish boundary.
This year following feedback from those who attended, there will be a small charge for admission. Wristbands will be again available from Active Life Centre as follows:
- from Tuesday 1 October for residents of the Parish of Coxhoe and Quarrington Hill only for £1 per person; and
- from Wednesday 16 October they will be available at £2 for anyone, including those from neighbouring villages.
There are special arrangements for residents of Quarrington Hill, who might find it difficult getting to the Active Life Centre, as wristbands will be available from Quarrington Hill Community Centre on the following dates and times:
- Saturday 12 October 10.00 am to 12.00 noon
Please note that there is a limit of 3,000 tickets. The limit is as recommended by the fireworks event co-ordinator and risk assessment. Tickets will be limited to 6 per household. You need to being evidence that you live in the Parish area to secure wristbands in the first phase of sale.
We will keep you up to date on progress on these pages and our social media.
