Borderland Rotary Club have been giving donations to good causes – money that was raised from the Bonfire and Fireworks display last autumn which was held at the Venue at Park Hall.

The event, which was originally scheduled to be held at Brogyntyn Park, by the Fire Station, was cancelled due to safety concerns and Jonathan Jones, who has run the event on behalf Borderland Rotary and the Town Council for most of this century, had to quickly find an alternative site.

Jonathan said, “It was all a bit of a scramble last year, but with the help of Matt Lee from Manic events, Borderland Rotary members, and Venue staff, we made it happen and I’m just so pleased that we can now help local good causes with much needed donations.

“We asked Rotary members to go out and present the cheques to the recipients during the spring and early summer. And this year? Well, we’re not sure what’s happening yet, but I’ll do my best to hold a display somewhere so keep Saturday 4th November free – and just watch this space!”

Jonathan Jones has been organising the firework displays on behalf of Borderland Rotary Club for around twenty years and has no intention of giving up on this great community endeavour any time soon.
