Bonfire and Fireworks Grant Fund
Jonathan Jones from the Rotary Club who plays a lead role in the event said "This year's event was a big success with a record amount being raised. Thank you to everyone who came to the bonfire evening in November, we had lots of positive comments about the display and we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. The support from the community means that we can fund some great work and projects. I would like to thank the Town Council for underwriting the event so that 100% of the money collected goes to these worthwhile causes."
Town Clerk, Arren Roberts said "The panel were impressed by the range and scale of applications, funding has been prioritised to those delivering activity in the town of Oswestry itself, with each application considered on merit."
The Mayor of Oswestry, Councillor Mark Jones said "The event is a real team effort between the Town Council, the Borderland Rotary Club and the Community, we thought it was a success and look forward to seeing the money raised benefiting a lot of people in the community ."
President of Oswestry Borderland Rotary Cathy Osselton said "Thanks to Rotarians who gave their time to build the bonfire and to steward on the evening, we are really pleased to be working with the Town Council and to support such worthy causes to benefit the town"
