Bradley Stoke Town Council’s 7th annual firework display has been hailed a tremendous success by both organisers and residents after record crowds braved the cold to watch the event at the Jubilee Centre on Sunday.
Official estimates put the attendance at between five and six thousand and organisers confirmed this as a new record for the event.
The 6pm start was delayed by approximately fifteen minutes while marshals ensured everyone was safely accommodated on site.
No formal admission was charged for the event but entry point collections raised £4,250 (over twice the amount raised last year), every penny of which goes to charity as the display costs are covered by the council.
Cllr Mark Forsyth, Town Mayor (pictured above, centre right), whose chosen charities will benefit from the public donations said:
