Fireworks (5th November)
Crowborough Town Council’s Communications & Events Committee meet tomorrow evening (Tuesday 6th July) and they will discuss the firework dislay at Goldsmiths. The officer’s report states that:
At this time it is looking positive that the event will be able to go ahead as planned. Depending on the exact restrictions released before the event will determine what mitigating measures will need to be put in place for the event.Peter Cunnington, Operations Manager
At their last meeting in April, committee members agreed to offer the supplier Pyrovision a 50% deposit at confirmation of booking with the proviso that the Council could cancel up to 30 days before the event without becoming liable for the remainder of the cost.
Councillors have also asked for the use of Silent fireworks to be investigated for a future event.
