“Fantastic” fireworks display well-attended by villagers

“Fantastic” fireworks display well-attended by villagers

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 16:12 by Jackie Clements

Duffield's bonfire and fireworks evening in November proved just as popular as in previous years, with thousands of residents enjoying the Parish Council-organised display. Villagers' comments included: "superb"; "a fantastic display"; and "well organised as ever, well done to all the volunteers".

Parish Council staff were ably assisted by volunteers from the Duffield Community Association who manned the gates, members of the Explorer Scouts and Derby College students who did a fantastic job marshalling the event, the Women's Institute and Cricket Club who provided drinks, and also members of Duffield Scouts who did a brilliant job litter picking at the Meadow the next morning. The Parish Council would like to extend its thanks to all the volunteers – the event could not take place without them. More »

After the display had finished and spectators left the meadow large numbers of young people gathered and created a nuisance, their anti-social behaviour escalated and unfortunately the police were called to deal with them. The Parish Council is working closely with the police and would request that anyone with information about this incident contact the police on 101 giving the crime reference number 17000478150, or alternatively contact Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. » Less

Duffield bonfire and fireworks display 3rd November: buy your tickets now!

Duffield bonfire and fireworks display 3rd November: buy your tickets now!

Thu, 12 Oct 2017 14:56 by Jackie Clements

Duffield Parish Council's annual bonfire and fireworks display will be held at Eyes Meadow on Friday 3rd November. Don't miss it!

As in previous years, tickets will be available from Town Street Newsagents, Town Street chip shop and Meadow Vale Convenience Store. This year the tickets are in the form of bright yellow wristbands which will make getting in to the event quicker and easier as the wristband can be worn on the night and shown to the DCA volunteers on the entry gate. Save time and money and buy your wristband ahead of time: you won't need to queue to buy one at the gate and wristbands cost £2 in advance compared to £3 on the night (under-5s get in free). More »

Gates open at 6pm, the bonfire will be lit at 7:00 and the display will begin at 7:15pm. There will be hot food and drinks available, sweets and light-ups stalls for the children and the cricket club bar will be open.

Car parking is limited to Blue Badge holders only at this event. The Parish Council would like to remind visitors to this event that a torch is very useful as the approach roads are very dark, as is the Meadow itself! Spectators' fireworks, including sparklers are not permitted at the display. Finally, we would ask that all visitors leave the Meadow after the fireworks are over as we cannot be held responsible for anyone's safety when the event is finished. » Less
