Featherstone Rovers Free Community Bonfire

Monday 5th November 2012

Featherstone Rovers Free Community Bonfire Story in brief:
Thank you to all who attended last night and we look forward to welcoming you back next year!

Featherstone Rovers in conjunction with Stadium Sponsor Big Fellas Nightclub, Pontefract yesterday evening held a free bonfire and fireworks display for the local community. As well as the large bonfire and spectacular fireworks display lasting over 45 minutes, there were a number of fun fair rides and entertainment live on stage by Capital FM Breakfast DJ Hirsty and Danny Mylo of Pulse Radio.

A healthy crowd of over 2,000 assembled in bitterly cold weather for what was a great finale to half term for local children.

Featherstone Rovers CHief Executive Craig Poskitt said "We are really pleased with how the evening went and all at the club can't thank Tony Lumb and Big Fellas enough for organising the event and the volunteers who were on hand. We have received great feedback from those who attended and had positive feedback from the local police who had no issues to report. Following the success of last night, we are already planning a bigger and better event next year so keep your diaries free!".
