About the Alford Bonfire and Fireworks Event
The community bonfire and fireworks display in Alford was originally hosted by the Alford & District Round Table and held at a recreation ground in the town centre. After the town's Round Table closed the Rotary Club, Cricket Club, Town Council and Fire Brigade volunteers came together to enable the Alford bonfire and firework event to continue at it's new location, the Alford & District Cricket Club ground in Well Lane.
An important aspect of the event is providing a safe experience and also reducing the risk of numerous garden bonfires and firework displays. To this end the bonfire and firework display has for many years been undertaken, and the whole event overseen, by the Alford Voluntary Fire Brigade with a manned tender on site. Several of the Fire Fighters are appropriately trained and certificated in the handling of category 2 and 3 fireworks.
