Fireworks display seen from afar

Fireworks display seen from afar

Sir, — I took this photograph of the Henley Round Table fireworks at Swiss Farm, Henley, on Saturday night from Sham Hill. — Yours faithfully,

Sir, — Henley Round Table would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to all those who supported this year’s fireworks display at Swiss Farm.

We were keen to make amends for the disappointment of last year and are delighted that record numbers were able to enjoy the excellent display on Saturday.

Thanks to the generosity of the people of Henley we collected more than £6,800 in donations for our nominated charity, Bishopswood Special School.

This was truly a community effort and we’d like to thank in particular our sponsor Wilkins for sticking by us, all the volunteers who gave up their free time to help organise the event, Southern Plant for supplying equipment, the Borlase family for use of the field, Lovibonds and Rebellion for supplying fine beer, Henley Rotary Club, Henley Rugby Club and Rupert House School.

A special mention is due to the fireworks company, Skyburst, which worked hard to make up for last year by doubling the size of the display at its cost, making it possible for us to waive the entrance fee, and for providing a spectacular display. Well done!

Thank you, Henley. If you would like to be part of Henley Round Table, please email — Yours faithfully,

Rob Tatman

On behalf of Henley Round Table
