What a great event.
There was record attendance at this year’s bonfire and firework display which passed off without any incidents.
Many thanks to all the local businesses that provided wood. The bonfire was enormous.
A massive thank you to all the volunteers who gave up their time to build the bonfire, act as stewards throughout the event and then helped clean up the field today.
The fireworks which were quieter ones than normal, were absolutely brilliant.
Send picture of your carved pumpkins to the Tankersley Parish Council FB Page before the end of Halloween for everyone to enjoy and possibly win a prize.
Take part in the best dressed house for Halloween and our pumpkin carving competition.

This morning Scarecrows made by Children from St Peter’s School met a Minion, Scary Poppins, Dollywood, Mr McGregor and Peter Rabbit and a Scarecrow tennis fan.
Thank you to everyone who took part in this year’s Scarecrow Festival. The talent and creativity from everyone who took part has been amazing.
It was a pity that not all scarecrows who entered this year’s competition could make it to the Bowling Green this morning, but we’ve really enjoyed looking at their scarecrow creations around the parish. The winners will be announced later today. Thank you also to Cllr Laverick for organising the event and the Welfare Hall Management for making the Scarecrow gathering on the Bowling Green possible.
