Wood For The Bonfire

Preparations for the Annual Bonfire Night at The Oval North Luffenham are well underway. The weather forecast is saying the skys will clear in time for the fireworks tomorrow.

The bonfire itself is a bit reduced from previous years, and so if you have any unwanted, unpainted, wood that could help build it up that would be appreciated.
