7,000 attend Tynemouth club’s grand bonfire evening

TYNEMOUTH Cricket Club would like to thank everyone who supported the annual grand fireworks display and bonfire evening on November 5.

It was an ideal evening for the event, and more than 7,000 adults and children of all ages passed through the gates to the cricket field. The spirit inside the ground was brilliant, with the sideshows and refreshment stalls glowing invitingly in the dark before the fireworks diverted attention to the skies for a full 25 minutes.

The authorities present were supported by a team of local scouts and the club’s own volunteers. The clear-up operation the next morning was completed in good time for a christening party to go ahead at midday. Well done to all concerned, and the club look forward to welcoming you back next year.

Thank you all again for the enjoyable evening and a good boost to much needed club funds. The pavilion is still available for hire over the close season for private and social events. Contact Andrew Lineham on 07763 745880 or via andrewlineham@hotmail.com
