Sparks will fly at Ebley Fireworks
A SPECTACULAR display of colour will light up the skies when Ebley Fireworks returns to Marling School playing fields on Monday, October 28.
The rotary clubs of Stonehouse, Nailsworth and Stroud will join together to put on the largest professional firework display synchronised to music across the Five Valleys.
Gates will open at 6pm, the bonfire will be lit at 7.20pm and the firework display will start at 8pm.
There will be all the usual attractions and rides with Conley’s Funfair as well as several caterers providing a variety of food and drink.
The event, which began 61 years ago at the children’s home at Ebley House, has grown and developed into a major local event, attracting around 5,000 visitors.
Over the years hundreds of thousands of pounds has been raised for local charities and good causes.
Organisers hope that this year's event will raise £12,000 for various organisations including The Door Youth Project, St Rose's School, Stroud Valleys Project, Great Western Air Ambulance and Maidenhill School's new community room project.
Chairman of the event organisers, Rotarian Leon Sandells said: “It should be a great evening – one of the best, if not the best, in the South West.
"A truly family and community event enabling us to help people in the area who most need support."
Admission payable on the gate is £6 for adults and £3 for primary aged children.
