After the success of the 2016 fireworks event, which was attended by 2,000 to 2,500 people, Newmachar Rockets are planning for the 2017 event. As last year, it will be a free, professional display which will take place on Saturday, 11th November at 6:30 pm at the Charles Gordon Park football ground. The fireworks event will be pedestrian access only, although disabled parking is planned close by.
This year the main fundraising event is a Race Night, which takes place at the Scout and Guide Hall on Saturday 16th September at 7:30 pm. Tickets cost £5, which includes some nibbles and a disco. Drinks on the night are on a bring your own basis.
All funds raised will go to the 2017 fireworks event.
The fireworks event itself will be similar to last year, and food and drink stalls will be available on site.
The display will be funded entirely by charitable donations and is only possible with the support of the community, including the donation of raffle prizes for the fundraising event.
If anyone would like to assist or get in touch, please visit the facebook page or email the committee.
