Club member Peter Hort, 37, said: “We like to do what we can for the community, and it helps us to pay our bills—but everyone puts in their time for free, so we have to say a big thanks to them.”

“It was a great night, around 1,000 people came—we’re getting more visitors from other villages every year.”

As well as two fireworks displays, spectators also enjoyed live music.
