November 5th has now been and gone, but here in Robertsbridge we still have our event to come. There is a meeting on Thursday 14th November at Robertsbridge Club starting at 8pm. There are plenty of jobs to be done before the event so please members and any one that would like to help out please attend the meeting or go into see Sandie at the Floral Boutique who will point you to the right person in the society. The charity street collection is still in need of collectors, and don’t forget the monies raised on the night go back to the groups in the village; they do not go to run the bonfire. If you would like to collect please go to the front door of Robertsbridge Club by the Car Park and pick up and sign for a collecting box. If you would like to help marshal the street on the night there is a meeting for briefing marshals on the route and procedures on Friday 15th November at Robertsbridge Club starting at 8pm.

This is the 23rd time this event has been put on in Robertsbridge and some of the members are now getting a bit past the use by date so please to keep this great night going help out if you can. Programmes are available now in the village at only 30p, this is all you need to tell you all of the times and places for this happening on Bonfire Night in Robertsbridge.
