A large and excited crowd gathered on Pauls Lane car park on Saturday 4th November to watch the annual Overstrand Village Fireworks display. The Beacon was lit at 7.15pm with the fireworks commencing at 7.30pm.
Organised by Overstrand Parish Council with assistance and support from the fireworks lighting team and the Millennium Playground Group who supplied the catering the event raised £1,250.56, which is an excellent start towards next years display. A special thanks to the White Horse for their donation of £100, which added another firework box to the display.
The event is self-financing with all the monies raised on the night going towards the following year’s display. The Parish Council then arrange one or two fund raising events to boost funds as well as seeking support from Overstrand businesses.
