On Saturday 3rd November, Daventry Town Council put on a spectacular firework display for the people of Daventry. Thousands braved the wind and the rain to be enthralled and mesmerised by Daventry’s best ever firework extravaganza.
People gathered on Eastern Way and across the Town to marvel at the spectacle. And, although the start was delayed, their unyielding faith was rewarded with a stunning visual display, stretching across the night sky for a full twenty minutes.
Over 1000 fireworks were fired by Amazing Fireworks, who battled the best of British weather to ensure the “Show Must Go On”.
Daventry Town Mayor, Cllr Ron Fox, extended thanks to the Police, Daventry Town Wardens, St John Ambulance, Stewards, Safety Advisors, CCTV Control Room, Icon Centre and volunteers who, following months of preparation and careful planning, ensured the event passed without incident.
Cllr Fox also thanked the people who came and supported the event, creating a ‘feel good’ family atmosphere.
The Parade will set off from St. James’ Infant School at 10.30 am and process along the High Street to the War Memorial. There will then be a short Service led by Canon Michael Webber and followed by the Act of Remembrance two minutes silence and laying of wreaths. All are then welcome to attend the Church Service at Holy Cross which will start at approximately 11.25 am. We hope that many of you will join us on this important occasion.
