Volunteers Needed – Bonfire Night Sunday 5th November 2017

The Parish Council Bonfire Night Working Group are now finalizing the arrangements for Bonfire Night 2017. The event will take place on Sunday 5th Nov 17 on the Oval. ‘Doors’ will open at 6pm and the bonfire will be lit at around 6.10pm and fireworks will commence around 6.30 pm. There will be a competition for the best ‘Guy’ and drinks and hot refreshments will be available at very reasonable prices. To make the event a success we need to raise some £2,500 on the night through collections and sales.

We are now looking for volunteers to assist with Stewarding, Bucket Collections, Management of Fireworks and Catering support. We would be most grateful for any offers of assistance to ensure that the event can be both safe and successful. If you can help please call:

Paul Cummings: 01780 720124 or Charles Cade: 01780 720467

Bonfire Night 2016 🎆

Just a reminder that its 5th November – Bonfire Night 🙂

North Luffenham’s event on the Oval this evening will include a competition for the best Guy, a Barbecue with burgers, hot and cold drinks for sale, and, back by popular demand, real Mulled Wine with an extra shot of warming spice.

So get rummaging in your wardrobes for that Worzel Gummage look and make your way to the Oval prior to the bonfire being lit at 6.20pm 🙂


The Parish Council will again be hosting a Bonfire Night event on the Oval on Saturday 5th November.

This year we invite villagers to bring a ‘Guy’ – guys will be judged at the Pavillion at 6pm and a prize awarded for the best. The Bonfire will be lit at around 6.30 and the fireworks will commence shortly afterwards.

As usual hot food and drinks will be available. There will be a bucket collection to help offset the costs and we would be most grateful for your generosity. Suggested donation is £5 per family

The event costs almost £2,000 to cover the costs of fireworks and insurance and unless we can cover these costs it may not be possible to fund the event in the future.

Thanks to all those that have volunteered to act as stewards, caterers, bonfire builders etc, it is much appreciated.
