The fire is built, the torches are ready, all the organising is done. Time to put on the costumes and make up and come out for bonfire. Have fun everyone!

Preparation is going well. The torches and fiery pieces are all dipped and ready for tomorrow. The bonfire is looking pretty impressive too! It’s all looking good. Thank you to everyone who has come out and helped today. We are meeting tomorrow again – watch this space, the Facebook page and WhatsApp for where we need help.
The Barcombe Rookies are making some “fake” torches using torch sticks, hessian and LED lights. We will be selling them at badge night (15th November at the Oak) for a fiver each. These are safer for younger children and for those nervous of real flaming torches.
Despite press announcing a huge police presence, Bonfire Night in Lewes went off really well. The traditional torches, procession, bangs and fireworks making for a fun, exciting evening. Barcombe had the most amazing time and would like to thank Borough Bonfire Society very much for being such amazing hosts.
Get them while you can for the bargain price of £2 each

All done and ready to be dipped on the 15th. A bit close to the wire getting them done this year but a good effort by all to get there! Our new Captain of Torches Meghan has done a fantastic job. Well done
What a fab night – thank you to all of you that came. We raised £400 and we all had a brilliant night. Jason’s voice is just coming back and he still has a sore head . . .
