Now look you bonfire lot......I've been waiting with baited breath, logging on sadly every 5 minutes to see who's said what about their experiences of the 5th and I can practically see the tumbleweeds rolling accross the forum screen!
What's up with everyone?
Was it not good?
I want to hear about the spirit and atmosphere. I thought it was great, (apart from a poor young lady who was injured by flying wood, which was upsetting for everyone, including the Society).
I want to hear about how many parking meters Chav tried to blow up before he realised they weren't there. And about the old gits moaning about this and that just because they feel the need to moan. And about how Cossack (wherever he is now) possibly getting arrested for trying to chat up a policewoman. Stuff like that.
Spinster, Lopster and all the other non-moaning posters, did you have a good night?

probably still hungover from yesterdays session after the clear up. It was a fantastic night. Crowds seemed to be more accepting to marshalls etc, and nowhere near as many uncontrollably drunken teenagers letting themselves down. Police were still watching the procession when they should have been watching the crowd. Hope they got the message when "Smart Arse" came by.

I went to the Brockham display. My partner and I, did the procession through the village with torches to the sound of a boys band, it looked like an army from the middle ages on the march to battle. There were hundreds of us, which increased in size from people holding torches from the sides watching. fantastic experience. Never done it before.
After the 50 minute trek, we were organised in a circle round the bonfire at the centre of the green and after a calming period, a 3 second countdown, we pushed the flaming torches into the bonfire, and with so many going in, it erupted into flame. Massive fire, followed by excellent firework display.
Have to say, during the march with torches you felt a certain nationality and pride. Must have seemed frightening to any ethnics. Of which there were none there.

excellent night - carried my six-year old round on my shoulders most of the night so I'm still recovering - wonderful to get around with the town free of [too many] visitors - stood at the front at the Memorial for poppies/remembrance for the first time in years - and then able to get down to JHTavern in about 10 minutes (has been known to take nearer an hour on the 5th) - Hurrah for bonfire ON THE 5th!!! - like to know what all the tabs were this year - been reading about Cliffe's Seagull (tee hee) - BUT why oh why did the constabulary close the pavements on Cliffe bridge - PATHETIC and potentially more dangerous than leaving them open I would suggest
