Firework Display to Music
This year's Firework Display was an amazing event with the rain holding off until the event had finished. The setting of the fireworks to music (with a movie theme) was the finishing touch. So much positive feedback has been received with many people saying it is the best fireworks display they have attended. It was lovely to see so many residents of the town gathering to enjoy the free event.
The event could not run without the outstanding support from the volunteer marshal and bucket collectors from a range of local groups including Little Stoke Social Club, volunteers from two of the three Mayor's Charity groups (The Brightwell and Mamas Bristol), Bradley Stoke in Bloom, Green Gym, Three Brooks Nature Conservation Group, the young people of Bradley Stoke, and BSTC councillors and staff. Once again, Bradley Stoke Radio supported the event keeping the crowds entertained before the start of the display and Bradley Stoke Rotary Club ran their BBQ (which has raised over £1,300 for their charitable causes). The Town Council would like to thank all those who assisted at this year's event.
The bucket collection on the night has now been counted and the final bucket collection total was £2,438.74
This year, for the first time, we used Sum-up for people to donate through their phones, to-date we have received £579.89 through this avenue.

This amount does not include donations from the commercial food vans which are:
