5,000 torches set to light the way for Nevill’s celebrations

Nevill Juvenile Bonfire Society’s preparations are nearing

completion for its celebrations next Saturday, October 20.

More than 5,000 torches have been made, together with a splendid effigy of Guy Fawkes and a grand tableau entitled “Ohh So Terribly British”.

Entry to the firefield to see the spectacular firework display is still only £3 each with accompanied children under 16 free.

If you fancy getting more involved then the Society will be holding a membership event today (Friday) from 3pm–9pm at St Mary’s Church Hall, Highdown Road, Lewes.

There will be an exhibition of the history of the Society and a selection of the Society’s merchandise and costumes to buy.

Membership will also be available in the Cliffe Precinct this Saturday morning.

Next Saturday road closures will be enforced throughout the estate and from the Landport Fork and the junction with The Gallops. Nevill also wants to remind all attending the event that, in line with other societies throughout Sussex, it has banned the use of all dropdown fireworks both in the processions and on the firefield.
