The trees that will be the masts and the main structure of the Mayflower started to be felled on 4th December. RHS Rosemoor had to fell several trees on their land for safety reasons and they have donated then to us.

We will be shifting them to the bonfire site soon.

Thank you so much to the RHS for their support.

The Great Torrington Cavaliers would like to thank you all for attending our annual bonfire and fireworks spectacular last weekend. We hope you enjoyed the excellent  display by Two Tigers Fireworks.

We would also like to thank Glen Bealey for the use of his field and for his invaluable help with the building of the fire, the Rugby Club for the use of their facilities, Pearce Construction, Atlas packaging, Home Hardware and Combe fisheries for the pallets.

We are now looking forward to starting the build of the 2020 bonfire next spring.

Thanks again to you all we really appreciate it. 

 

We are delighted to announce that we have come to agreement with some of our suppliers for the sponsorship / support for Bonfire 2020. We are really please that these organisations are helping because we would be unable to stage such an event without their valued help which in turn allows us to raise money for charity. Thank you.
