The rat is then laid on the spectacular bonfire, which is then followed by a fabulous firework display.

Delicious food and drinks are on offer to include locally produced farmhouse sausage hotdogs, jacket potatoes with chilli or beans, home-made soup & bread, delicious mulled wine, locally brewed beer, hot drinks, parkin and of course bonfire toffee.
