Woodlands Meed Family Fireworks Night

Volunteers create a spectacular event for the local community.

Family Fireworks Night at Woodlands Meed on Saturday 13th October 2018 was a sparkling success.  The stunning fireworks were set to music and a mild, almost warm evening and clear night’s sky ensured the fireworks set the sky alight with colour and magical sparkle.

An event designed by The Friends of Woodlands Meed for the whole community with families and those with special needs in mind was generously supported by the community and local businesses with neighbouring secondary school , Burgess Hill Academy lending their field to house and fire all the fireworks safely away from the crowds watching at Woodlands Meed.

It really was a triumph of volunteers working together, supported by local businesses to put on an event for Burgess Hill and the wider community.  Over £3000 was raised for Woodlands Meed which will go towards funding equipment and projects at this special needs School and College for children from aged 2 to 19 with special educational needs.

The event which was generously, sponsored by local business Ellis Motors, AVS Fencing, Mr MOT, Floral Image, Sussex Stone Works, Caremark, Sussex Prestige Cars, JS Electrical and Blake Landscaping and included volunteers from Burgess Hill Lions and Burgess Hill Youth who kindly marshalled the event along with Burgess Hill Radio and the local St Johns Ambulance.  Burgess Hill local police put in a visit too! 

Adam Rowland, Head Teacher at Woodlands Meed School said ‘I am delighted so many people came and supported and enjoyed this family fireworks event. We are extremely grateful too for the support of Burgess Hill Lions and the Burgess Hill Academy in helping our Friends of Woodlands Meed volunteers to be able to put on this event.’
