Bromsgrove Rugby Club's thanks for 'overwhelming' community response rebuilding bonfire that was set alight

BROMSGROVE Rugby Club has thanked the community for ‘pulling together’ to rebuild the venue’s bonfire which was set alight last Friday.

Vandals struck at 2.30am – a month before it was due to be lit for Guy Fawkes Night.

The club put out an appeal for wood via social media, shared by the Standard, and people came forward in their droves.

A spokesperson for the club said everyone was gutted after the blaze as the event would raise cash to help keep the club going and provide rugby for more than 400 youngsters across the district.

Now it is rebuilt they thanked everyone who had donated and added: “It’s been a long day for ourselves and H2O Restoration Limited but the bonfire is complete.”

They said the response was ‘overwhelming’ and apologised to those they could not get back to who had offered donations.

The event will take place on November 5 with doors opening at 5.30pm, the bonfire being lit at 7.15pm and the fireworks at 7.45pm.

Tickets are £5 for adults, £3 for children or £15 for a family ticket – two adults and up to three children. Under threes go free.

As well as the traditional festivities, there will also be a live music from the Ron Jeremy Band, a funfair and street food, including Kendricks Smoke and Fire, Double Dough Pizzas, Ascotts Street and BBQ and Chip Food Shack.

There is no parking on site.
