THE date for Cardenden’s Community Bonfire has been set.

Friday, November 3, is one for the diaries with a 7pm start time at Wallsgreen Park.

And the Bonfire Committee has made an appeal to the local business community to help them in their search for wooden pallets for the bonfire.

The committee’s Alex Burns MBE, said: “Pallets are a key part of the bonfire and we would love to hear from businesses who could donate some for November 3.

“We need a fair number of pallets to help in the construction of the bonfire, and if anyone can help us please call the Bowhill Centre on 01592 583471.”

The committee would like the pallets to be delivered to Wallsgreen Park on the morning of November 3, if possible.

Alex added: “The costs for the fireworks, which make the bonfire so special, have continued to rise but we have been very fortunate that various local groups have supported us to ensure that this year’s event goes ahead and we warmly thank them for their backing.”

A crowd of more than 4,000 people is expected on the night and the Bonfire Committee would welcome volunteers to come forward to help out at Wallsgreen Park on the night.

If anyone would like to help, just contact the Bowhill Centre on 01592 583471.
