Family fun guaranteed at Icklesham


There will be bonfire fun for all the family at the annual Robin Hood Bonfire and Fireworks at Icklesham tomorrow night (Saturday, November 5).

The gates will open at 6.30pm.

Entry to the event, which takes place at the Robin Hood pub, costs £3 or £2 for the under 12s.

There will be a licensed bar, hot food and ice cream available on the night.

All proceeds from the event will be donated to local charities and organisations.

Next year Robin Hood Bonfire will celebrate its 20th anniversary.

And just days after this weekend’s celebrations, the society will be meeting to discuss plans for the 2017 event.

Robin Hood is appealing for people to come forward to help ensure next year’s event goes with a bang.

The meeting will take place at the Robin Hood pub on Tuesday November 8, 7.30pm for a 7.45pm start.

All are welcome to attend.
