Despite being a cold, windy and at times rainy night, the annual Lions Club bonfire and firework display went off with a bang.

This year’s theme was the 50th anniversary of Dr Who and the best dressed guy competition was won by Jessica Wall with her Amy Pond guy.

The no-bangs children’s firework display preceded the lighting of bonfire and the crowds waited in anticipation for the firework display orchestrated by Neon Sky Fireworks of Lincoln as the bonfire burnt down.

Throughout the evening hot dogs, soups, hot and cold drinks and toffee apples were sold, the proceeds of which, along with the generous donations given by the public, will go to the local community and worthwhile causes.

Lion President Martyn Kemp said: “Many thanks to everyone involved in the setting up of the park, the preparation before the event, the generous public for the donations and the help given on the night, the police, the fire brigade, Kelsey 1st Responders, Yarborough Academy and Caistor Town Council.

“Thanks also to our generous sponsors for their continuous support over the years; Caistor Town Council, Caistor Yarborough Academy, Lincolnshire Montessori, Systematic Print Management Ltd, Caistor Antiques, Bates and Mountain Solicitors, Southdale Service Station, Orchard Service Station, Lincolnshire Co-operative Society, Caistor Paper Shop, Killingholme Power Station, Ann K Robinson Accountants, Shires Accounting, Paul Wiseman Electrical, Cherry Valley, CoJo’s of Louth, Pipers Crisps and Andy Lord Neon Sky Fireworks for providing a fantastic display.”
