Sparks fly next year

A FIREWORKS display could be on the cards for villagers — but not until next year.

Coun Anderson Crowe has urged fellow members of Widdrington Station and Stobswood Parish Council to consider organising a display for Guy Fawkes Night.

“Would the parish council be in support of organising a kids’ disco and firework display maybe for next year?” he said.

“It can get expensive, but it would be something more for the community.”

Other members told him to investigate the costs so they can consider it in time for November 5, 2012.

Coun Shelly Willoughby added: “To have a firework display we are limited for space, but are we in a position to approach Grainger Trust to ask if it will let us use the field?”

The council will consider the issue further if more details are provided.
