HELMSLEY Sports and Social Club is hosting the town’s annual family bonfire night celebrations on Saturday, and Scotts is proud to be sponsoring the event.

Taking place on the sports field, just off Baxton Road, gates open at 6pm with the bonfire being lit at 6.30pm and the fireworks display commencing at 7pm.

Entry to this year’s bonfire is £4 for children and adults with under-fives free. In addition to the fireworks, there will be stalls selling food and toys, including cosmic swords. There will also be the chance to take part in a game inspired by the classic game show, Play Your Cards Right.

Carol Swift of the Helmsley Bonfire Committee said: “The Recreation Ground Management Committee would like to thank everyone involved for their support, including new sponsor Scotts of Helmsley fish and chip restaurant and takeaway, members of The Lions Club for running the gate, and a small army of family and friends who have built the bonfire and are helping with the cooking and the running of the various stalls and stands.”
