Hollinsend Cricket Club is having a bonfire again this year. The fire will be lit at 6:30pm this year - little earlier following requests from the public. The gate has been kept closed this year to cut down on the fly tipping and dumping of non-combustible rubbish. Last year, we had to pay for skips to remove mattresses, water tanks (!), scrap metal, etc. If you have timber, not hedge clippings / brushwood; feel free to bring it along on the morning of the 5th or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
to make arrangements for the gate to be opened. Sorry to have to take such draconian measures this year but unfortunately, a few unscrupulous individuals take advantage of what is meant to be a event to dump their rubbish.
