Burgess Hill Carnival and Bonfire 2011 – IMPORTANT

Saturday 24th September should see the annual procession in Burgess Hill.

Sadly, a few weeks ago, just before the start of the bonfire season, Burgess Hill announced that they would not be holding their procession and carnival in 2011.  The reasons for this have not been entirely clear, but it seems that, once again, lack of support on the ground, on the night, seems to be a major contributing factor.

I have been informed that the bonfire society and fairground will be putting on a firework display on the evening.

This means we get a weekend off, a chance for our bogeys to lose the blackness they have obtained over the last three weeks of smoke breathing, and Sussex Bonfire will return on Saturday 1st October, with Rotherfield and Mark Cross.
