Virtual Bonfire

Night 2020

Join our virtual 'Bonfire' and help raise £2k for our new HQ!

As we can't hold our traditional Bonfire Night and Fireworks this year due to Covid-19 we have decided to organise our first-ever 'Virtual Bonfire'!

So here's how it works!

Have a ‘Virtual Bonfire Party’ at home and make a donation, or

Arrange to make bonfire treats for your friends and neighbours for them to enjoy in their gardens/homes and ask for donations!

You can arrange it anytime to suit, either on Saturday 7th November or at a date that works for you! Let's see how many of us can celebrate virtually at the same time!

Upload all your photos to Facebook so we can all share our virtual celebrations together!

Members can upload or do a live post to share your activities on our members page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/943141885748963

Non Members please do a visitor post on our public page : https://www.facebook.com/2wkseascouts

Read on for more ideas on how you could organise your own safe & fun celebration!

JUST MAKE YOUR DONATION HERE:

'I think we could all do a bonfire evening at home - fire pits or BBQ's at the ready to toast some marshmallows for s’mores! We will also be making toffee apples! If everyone then donated what they would normally spend going to the Scouts bonfire evening we can all be together at a virtual bonfire while raising some vital funds.

This is what we are going to do as a family'

Siobhan, Current Scout Parent

We have held an annual Bonfire and Fireworks Party for more years than we can remember, and we still want to mark this year's Bonfire Night as a group.

Why not get together with friends and family (in line with government guidelines) and do your own traditional Bonfire Night celebration!

  • Make your own food - hot dogs, burgers or go the whole way and make some pork baps and apple sauce?!

  • Get some mulled wine brewing or get your own bar favourites in stock!

  • Get a fire pit or BBQ out to toast some marshmallows on

  • How about having a go at making toffee apples or gingerbread too?!

  • Sparklers are an easy option for the garden

  • Carve a pumpkin (see competition below) and have on display on the night!

  • If you want to have a go at your own fireworks - then head down to Jordan's Fireworks who have supported the group in the past with amazing Firework displays!

Let's keep the tradition alive!

In conjunction with Jordans Fireworks

Jordan's Fireworks have supported our Bonfires for many years. This year, if you take in a 2nd Warwick necker and buy some sparklers they will donate £1 for every pack purchased to us!

You don't need to buy any fireworks, but they have a great range and can give you helpful advise if you are going to try your own display this year!
