Rain did nothing to deter the large crowd gathered in the grounds of the Chase Hotel on Saturday to enjoy this year's Ross Lions' Bonfire and Firework Display. Lions and visitors alike were hoping for better weather after last year's very wet display and this wish was granted, but only marginally. There was less wind and so the rain fell vertically, making umbrellas more effective. Nonetheless, the Lions put on a great display and hopefully raised money. Money raised by the annual event helps many local people, supports local events and through Lions International, helps those more distant in need of financial support such as earth quake and tsunami victims.

As the rain was falling quite heavily, rather than film from close to the bonfire, like last year, I took the van inside the grounds again to protect the cameras. I still had some trouble keeping the rain from the lenses but did manage to film the event. I have compressed highlights from the display into 2 minutes 47 seconds and set it to a song, 'Sign of the Times' by local musician, Paul Randell. The video is split screen. On the left is a fast, wide angle view of the whole display and on the right, a closer view of the fireworks. We hope you enjoy watching and that clear skies may return for next year.
