THE annual Ludlow town centre bonfire has gone off with a bang.

Firework night at Gallows Bank gave people from the town the chance to enjoy a bonfire and fireworks whilst at the same time getting to know each other better.

Members of the local Young Farmers group also did their bit to make sure the event went with a swing.

The bonfire night and firework display has become a popular annual event attracting people from all over the town and the surrounding area.

Because the fireworks are on the bank the colours are visible to people from miles around.

It was started as part of the growing tend to people to attend public displays.

Six members of Ludlow Young Farmer’s club volunteered at the annual fireworks display on Gallows Bank.

The display was co-ordinated by councillor Tracey Huffer in partnership with Rockspring Community Centre.

Young Farmer’s Club members donned high visibility vests and torches to help steward and gather donations at the event, which drew a large number of spectators to watch the colourful display of fireworks.

The event is free to enter but is only made possible by the donations and support of volunteers such as the young farmers.

George Harris, who helped gather donations on the night, said it was good to see so many people

having a good and safe evening.

“It was really great to help out at this community event, and good to see everyone enjoying themselves and donating an amount to make the next year possible,” he said.

Ludlow Young Farmers Club is a charity organisation and is part of a larger network of clubs known as the National Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs.

But this doesn’t stop them from helping out other charities and organisations. NFYFC’s members have raised as much as £1.2 million for charities nationwide!
