We are the Barcombe Rookies (a group of children who are in training to become part of Barcombe Bonfire Society’s Committee).

In the future we have many fundraising opportunities: cake sales, a fun run, sponsored bike rides and a chip walk are just afew things to look forward to this year from us.

Our training is going to involve people from the Bonfire Committee joining us for one of our meetings to teach us their selective skill. Our next meeting is going to be held on September 9th. For futher information please email us at
