It was with much disappointment that Tankersley Parish Council were forced to cancel the Annual Bonfire in 2013.
To ensure the event runs safely and residents can enjoy the evening in a secure environment, the Parish Council requires a minimum number of volunteers to be a marshall on the day. Volunteers are also required to assist with the collection of bonfire wood prior to the event.
The Tankersley Annual Bonfire is a popular community occasion and the Parish Council are aware that many residents shared their disappointment when it didn’t go ahead last year, however due to not enough volunteers, the minimum number of marshalls required was not met and the health and safety of those attending could not be guaranteed.
The Bonfire is planned for Saturday 8th November 2014, and the Parish Council are asking for residents to contact the Parish Council if they can assist.
Volunteers will be required on Friday 7th November to assist in the collection of the bonfire wood from local businesses, as well as on the morning of the 8th November to build the bonfire. Volunteers will also be required on the evening of the 8th November to assist with marshalling the event, ensuring resident safety.
If you feel you could provide any time to help the Parish Council in the running of this much loved occasion, please contact the Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org and advise which days and times you could attend.
Volunteers will be contacted closer to the date to organise roles and responsibilities.
