Hebden Bridge Bonfire

From Nader Fekri, Mayor of Hebden Royd Town Council
Monday, 5 November 2007

May I thank all those who supported the Hebden Bridge Bonfire last Saturday. It was a fantastic event, attended and thoroughly enjoyed by many thousands of people, children, teenagers, and adults of all ages. Of course, the weather was wonderful, and for the first time in many years it was dry and cloudless, giving a perfect view of the absolutely astounding son et lumière.

However, I would like to especially thank the organisers, the Round Table and the Rotary Club, the business sponsors and supporters, the first aid crews of St John Ambulance, and Calder Valley Search and Rescue Team, and of course the Police. They all added to a superb event that was safe, enjoyable, and memorable.

Hope to see you all back next year.
