The long-awaited Firework Display took place on Saturday 6 November 2021 and again it was a huge success with the local community. Since Thurcroft first received the million pounds back in 2012, a Firework Display has always been a high priority for the village and what people wanted to see happen. We held the first event in 2019 and due to the success of this did it again this year, Covid 19 prevented last year’s event. From 4.00pm there were children’s rides, catering vans, a tuck shop, cake stall, a raffle and the bar was open for refreshments. The fireworks were lit at 6.30pm and what an amazing show it was, lasting 18 minutes long. Blaze Fireworks who provided the display for us unfortunately has their unit broken into the weekend before and all the fireworks for their main displays (including ours) were stolen.
However, this didn’t stop them from still managing to put on a brilliant display for us. Over 2000 people attended the event and we raised over £1500 during the evening, this money will go into the Year 11 fund to enable events to continue to take place when Big Local has finished. Lots of people gave up their time to volunteer on the day, the event wouldn’t have run so smoothly without everyone’s help.
A few quotes from the community:-
“Thank you all, we loved it”
“A very big thank you to all involved, it was a great night and fantastic fireworks, the kids really enjoyed it”
“Thank you it was a wonderful evening”
“Brilliant firework display, loved it”
The display was a huge success, it was so nice to see people enjoying themselves and to hear the positive feedback and how people really apricate what is put on for them in Thurcroft. We are already planning next year’s!
