Residents will be celebrating the news that the Rotary Club Bonfire at Clough Hall Park will go ahead. The event that will be held on Saturday 2nd November 2013 will be run by the Rotary club like it has been for the last 40 years. Health and Safety has been scrutinised by Staffordshire Police, Staffordshire Fire and Rescue and Newcastle Borough Council.
Following a short meeting in the Clough Hall Park Pavillion Ralph Rhodes and members of the Rotary set out their plans to ensure the event is safe and enjoyable for all. Several items were discussed including the layout of fireworks, bad weather contingency, bonfire materials, bonfire lighting and extinguishing, location of firework zone, policing and stewarding, risk assessments, barriers, lighting, tannoy and communications, first aid, toilets and event briefing.
This charity event will go ahead but will cost more due to the increasing demand to comply with red tape put in place by the authorities and the National Health and Safety Executive. I hope you can attend and support this fantastic event all for charity. The Rotary club of Kidsgrove have worked extremely hard to deliver this popular event and public support will be welcomed.
