Success for Fireworks Event

Hethersett’s first ever community firework spectacular has been heralded a success.  

Over 600 attended the event in the grounds of Hethersett High School organised by Hethersett Athletic Football Club.  

“It was our intention for this to be an event for the whole community and we were delighted with the response from families and local people. A number of local groups including Cringleford Scouts, Hethersett High School, Hethersett Junior School, Hethersett Athletic Football Club and Hethersett Social Club, took the opportunity to get involved and raise funds,” said Hethersett Athletic chairman Peter Steward.  

The evening included a fireworks display aimed at younger children, followed by a main display for all the family. There was also a story telling tent, face painting, a barbecue and refreshments and sale of luminous gadgets.  

“We were very heartened after the event to receive positive comments from people who wanted more similar community events,” Peter Steward added.  

Thanks to the success of the evening, the football club is looking at repeating it in 2010 with even more community groups becoming involved. The event was supported by a number of sponsors including Gladedale (Anglia) Ltd, Anglian Demolition and Asbestos Ltd, Hugh J. Boswell, Trell Contractors (Watton) Ltd, Warburtons Bakery, RS Signs
