Charities to benefit from bonfire

THE annual New Mills bonfire will take place this weekend.

The bonfire, at High Lea Park, will be lit at 7pm on Saturday by Cllr Janet Carter, chairman of New Mills Town Council. The fireworks will start at 7.30pm and there will also be food stalls, charity stalls and fairground rides for children in the park.

There is no admission charge for the event but those attending are encouraged to contribute to the bucket collection which will raise money for several local charities including Kinder Mountain Rescue Team, who will be helping on the night.

Jeff Lawton, the event organiser, would like to hear from anyone who is willing to help out, either as a steward or with the collection on the night. He can be contacted on 07973 828723 or or via New Mills Town Hall on 01663 743434.
