MONMOUTH Rotary Club will be running its annual Bonfire and Fireworks display on Sunday 5th November. It will take place in the Town field alongside the Rowing Club in Old Dixton Road.

Gates open at 6pm and Mayor Felicity Cotton will light the bonfire at 6.30pm. The fireworks display will start at just before 7pm and promises to be even better than last year, with spectacular effects and colours.

Danters will be bringing children’s rides, along with various stalls and serving burgers and hot dogs. And for the last event of their year, M&M Ices will be providing ice creams.

Despite rising costs, the organisers have decided to keep the entrance prices at last years’ level. At £6 for adults, £3 for children and £15 for families (two adults plus two children). This represents exceptional value for money.

All money raised from the event will be donated to charitable organisations supported by Monmouth Rotary Club.

This year the club is supporting St Davids Hospice Care, Velindre Breast Cancer Research Team, Shelter boxes, Monmouth Literary Festival, Macmillan Nurses, Wales Air Ambulance, Bridges Centre and also many other smaller charities and good causes.

Monmouth Rotary Club is going from strength to strength. Membership is increasing, and in the financial year ending 30th June 2017, the club donated more than £60,000 to charity.

Club meetings are held at the Royal Oak on Hereford Road each Wednesday evening at 6.45pm. If you are interested in finding out more about Rotary, why not go along to one of their meetings, or contact Sue Jenkins on 01594 531445, for further information.
