I want to create a section on this site all about Bonfire but mostly about peoples experience of it.
What are your best, worst, funniest memories/stories of it.

I want to create a section that embodies the attitudes of the town to our biggest annual celebration.
If you just want to write someting short add it to this thread but if you can write something more feel free to use the contact page to send me articles, stories, histories, images whatever you can.

If you want to rant about it can you do that in another thread please?
