"As one small candle may light a thousand, so the light here kindled has shown unto many." - Governor William Bradford of Plimoth Plantation.
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.

We have just decided on the main beneficiaries for the next major bonfire - Mayflower 400 in 2020. This time there will be 4 main organisations each receiving 10% of the monies raised with the remaining 60% being shared out to those that respond to the post bonfire invite in the local press.
We are very please to announce the following organisations who do a fantastic job will benefit from 40% of our bonfire monies:
