Pupils busy Guy making ahead of Warwick Bonfire

Leamington Editorial 1st Nov, 2017 Updated: 1st Nov, 2017   0

PUPILS have busy Guymaking in Warwick.

Warwick Mayor Stephen Cross visited both Newburgh and Westgate Primary Schools this week to see the Guys made by the children and hear about the Gunpowder Plot.

Both the Guys will be displayed in the racecourse concourse ahead of the Warwick Town Bonfire at the racecourse on Saturday (November 4), and sponsors Leycester House Care Home have made a donation for the schools.

Gates open at 5pm with free parking. The show will start with a short children’s firework display at 6pm followed by the main display set to music after the bonfire is lit at 6.30.

Tickets can still be purchased in Warwick from Torry’s in West Street; the main Post Office; Claridges; Cabin News; Mellors; Warwick vacuum shop; and the Tourist Information Centres in Warwick and Leamington; as well as Woodloes Post Office; and The Larder Box at Chase Meadow.

Online sales stop at midnight on Friday November 3.

Visit www.warwicktownbonfire.org.uk for further details.

Organisers Warwick Lions and the Rotary Club of Warwick are delighted by the support from Warwick Racecourse which has made the whole site available and is handling all the ticketing and entrance gates, so record crowds are anticipated.

Sponsorship has been provided by Bovis Homes, Baxi Heating, and the pallets for the Bonfire are supplied by Uniparts Logistics.

All proceeds will go to local charities and good causes.
