  • Fireworks display goes off with a bang!

    Henry James

    MAGHULL Town Council’s firework display really went off with a bang this year!

    Residents from across Sefton enjoyed a bigger display than in previous years, as well as carnival rides, hot food and the good atmosphere of Maghull Cricket Club.

    Fire breathers and stilt walkers entertained the crowds, getting the buzz going for the main event.

    A longstanding tradition in Maghull, the fireworks display was one of the few to take place on Bonfire Night within Merseyside. The event was moved to the new site of Old Hall Playing Field this year as it is much larger than Whinneybrook and allowed community groups like Maghull Cricket Club to get involved.

    With over 4,000 attendees, organisers are claiming that, “this was one of the most popular events in Maghull’s history” and one that came with new challenges.

    The Mayor of Maghull, Cllr June Burns, said: “The turn out for our Bonfire Night this year was incredible.

    “It was held for the first time on Old Hall Playing Field and, though there were a few teething problems, most attendees had words of thanks for the superb display.”

    Leader of Maghull Town Council, Cllr Patrick McKinley, added: “It’s been another fantastic event in Maghull. It was great to see so many families enjoying themselves and having a fun time.

    “We’ll look to improve the event for next year to make it bigger and better again!”

    Maghull Town Council want to thank Maghull Football Club and Maghull Cricket Club for their support.

    Their next big community event is Merry, Merry Maghull on KGV Playing Field, Friday, December 1.
