Wilford Charity Fireworks - Saturday 8th November from 4:30pm

Thank you for supporting the Wilford Fireworks event in previous years, for which we are very grateful.

This year we hope to provide a bonfire once again, although not the ‘small Welsh hillside’ of former years.

Two Firework Displays again this year, together with a Hog Roast, Real Ale & Music,

featuring local bands Terminal 5 Experience, and Nottingham Ukulele, amongst other things.

We will be giving support to Rainbows Children’s Hospice, and Riding for the Disabled this year

For full details and how to buy your tickets on-line, go to www.wilfordfireworks.org

Almost a year since the original application was made by Wilford Community Group, Wilford Social and Bowls Club has been added to the City Council's register of Assets of Community Value.

The owner is not obliged to see to the community, but it gives six months' breathing space.
