Next Saturday 3rd October we are marching at Eastbourne. This meeting gets better and better each year and is a shortish, flat march to a bonfire on the beach with fireworks and a bar. Very family friendly.
We will be meeting at The Kings Head from 5, getting the 5.53 train. Forming up at The Crown and Anchor 7 for 7.30 start. As with all outmeetings children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Any questions or to book on the coaches for other outmeetings message firstname.lastname@example.org
It is with great pleasure and no small measure of excitement that we can report that Southover Bonfire Society will have a firesite this year.
Tom Gent, Southover’s Commander in Chief, made the announcement at last night’s programme launch event at The Kings Head confirming that, following months of hard work involving many members of the Society, we have secured the Stanley Turner Ground as our firesite for this year and for the future.
In an event which marks the birthday of the late Keith Austin as well as the start of Bonfire Season 2015, Southover Bonfire Society will be gathering at The Kings Head from 7:30 on the evening of Wednesday 16th September to officially launch our 2015 programme.
Torchmaking season is upon us. Each marching member will burn up to ten torches on the 5th, so we are going to need thousands of them, and we need your help to get them all made.
Training will be given to newcomers, while old hands can concentrate on perfecting the traditionally high-quality SBS torch. We’ll be at The Swan, our new torchmaking venue, each Sunday morning between 9:30 and 11:30, and it would be great to see you there!
