The Village Hall Committee has decided that it could no longer support the burning of several tons of wood on bonfire night owing to the environmental impact, and particularly while planning a major decarbonisation project for the hall. The bonfire will therefore not be held in this or subsequent years. Instead, a firework celebration will be held.
This decision was not taken lightly as the committee appreciates the nature of this traditional national celebration and the long history of support in Whixley for the bonfire.
