This year has been our best so far. We supplied our friends at Electrify with the fireworks for all their shows again – from Kent to Cheshire, from Oxfordshire to County Durham, from London to the Humber, crowds all over the country were treated to some of the best displays in the UK.

My own favourite show is always the one I fire for Electrify in my own village of Radcliffe on Trent. The local schools, sports clubs and voluntary organisations get together to organise a true community event, with a fun fair, live music, food and drink, novelties, and (of course) two firework displays. There’s a quiet one for the children and a spectacular show later on for the adults (and the children brave enough to stay on).

It’s what it’s all about for me – people gathering in the dark in the depths of autumn to celebrate the summer that’s passed and look forward to the cosy nights of winter. Never mind the wind and the rain. Wrap up warm and fill the sky with light and fire.

So thank you to all our customers, to all the people who came to watch a show, to the firers, to the clearer-uppers, to Lucy and Ian at Electrify, and to all the volunteers who made it a night to remember.

See you next year.
