Now that our "Indian" summer has been and gone and the children are back to…
Remember, remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason, why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
Still planning what to do on bonfire night this week? If you’re looking to go away for bonfire weekend then you’ll be welcomed with big explosive displays of magical fireworks in Norfolk. Bonfire night to us is standing around a bonfire, wrapped up warm with a hot jacket potato with chilli on top, accompanied by a warm drink and a toffee apple. All whilst watching the firework displays.
