Ross Lions Light Up The Skies
over 2,000 people of all ages turned out on Saturday to
enjoy the Ross Lions Bonfire and Firework evening, which
annually raises funds for local charities. Many others watched
from adjacent houses and also from the windows of the Chase
weather was perfect for a bonfire, the Lions organized things
perfectly and the crowds turned up to enjoy an evening full
of entertainment on Saturday, 4th November.
Courtyard Education and Outreach Department also took part
by providing music, dancing, painting, an exhibition and
a light show. These
events were particularly aimed at the young people of Ross,
to help create interest in joining the 'Creative Learning
Centre' where they are able to participate in music, painting,
graphic design, dancing, singing lessons and much more.

no wind the bonfire, lit by the Ross Cubs after a torch
light procession, was soon ablaze lighting up the surrounding
trees and expectant faces of the crowd. The hot-dog and
beef burger stalls, the pig roast and drinks stalls did
a roaring trade. In fact it appears as if this year was
the most successful for sales of food and drink ever. Even
the Ice Cream van did well.

the bonfire had settled down, the firework display began.
Many of the onlookers commented that it was a fantastic
display and the Lions were pleased that the evening was
such a success. On leaving the ground at the end of the
show many visitors approached Lions members to thank them,
saying what a glorious evening it had been. Safe, enjoyable
and satisfying in every way. For
the first time after the event, many people gathered around
the bonfire to enjoy the warmth on a cold but bright night.
The sale of food also continued well after the finish.

in all a wonderful evening was enjoyed by all involved,
both organizers and visitors. The Ross Lions would like
to mention a few names of people they would like to thank
for assistance in putting on the show: The Chase Hotel for
their continued support with the free use of their grounds,
Simeon Cole for providing transport and machinery for building
the bonfire, Keymood for providing fire material, Richard
Ball, farmer, for the straw required to light the fire,
Andrew Cornwall for his pig roast, Martin Middlecote, along
with his sons, for their wholehearted assistance and also
the friends of the Lions, who turn up at all events to give
help as and when it is needed. Ross Lions would like to
thank you all.
