Our final Badge Night is this Friday (Nov 3) from 6pm-8pm at our HQ The Swan. That will be the last opportunity to get your Membership Card updated with this year’s sticker and pick up your 2023 Badge if you want to participate in the big night. Please bring your Membership Card with you. If you can’t find it, then you will need to pay for a replacement and get a temp card. In either case, you will also have had to renew your membership online in advance of Badge Night by following this link:
You need both your 2023 updated Membership Card and 2023 Badge with you in order to process on Bonfire Night. Marshals are checking and you will be asked to leave the procession if you don’t have both of these with you. You will also be denied access to the firesite and fireworks. Any queries, please contact email@example.com
Plus, even if you are all sorted, our final Badge Night is a great event. We’ve restocked our merchandise and clothing stalls so all those last-minute purchases can be made. Once our Badge Night has shut up shop, there is also the opportunity to join your fellow Bonfire buddies at The King’s Head from 8.30pm for some more banter etc. There won’t be any membership renewals, merch or clothing stalls available at The King’s Head.
Be afraid, our 2nd Badge Night is on Halloween, this Sunday (October 31), 6pm-8pm, at our HQ The King’s Head, coinciding spooktacularly with some other festival.
So why not do both? So all you Southover Bonfire Society members, go out on your trick or treating, then pop on down for some Bonfire Banter, to pick up your Badge, buy some lovely merchandise from Shireen (new fleeces, masks and lots more) and upgrade your costume. If anyone still wants to clothes swap, donate or sell, please contact Fiona on 07775 654744. It’s cash only for merch and costume.
(PS: calling all SBS captains, lieutenants, marshals, you are meeting at The King’s Head from 4.30pm-5.30pm with our Commander in Chief).
We would also seriously suggest you do a lateral flow test before you turn up and definitely don’t come along if you’ve got Covid or anything cold-like.
Please also remember to bring your red plastic SBS Membership Card(s) with you to Badge Nights as we need to update them all with a 2021 sticker.
You need both your 2021 updated Membership Card and 2021 Badge with you in order to process on November 5. Marshals are checking and you will be asked to leave the procession if you don’t have both of these with you.
Calling all members of Southover Bonfire Society, please make sure you check you’ve still got your Membership Cards. If you’ve lost yours or members of your family have, you need to order replacements NOW!
Replacement cards can be ordered before midday Saturday October 23 2021, for £3 each for collection at the remaining Badge Nights. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Replacement Card Order” in the subject field; a Mojo payment request will then be sent for completion.
In addition, if you are coming to the final two Badge Nights on Sunday October 31 and Thursday November 4, please remember to bring your red plastic SBS Membership Card(s) with you as we need to update them all with a 2021 sticker.
Don’t forget you do need to have renewed your membership online in advance of Badge Nights.
And finally…you need both your Membership Card and Badge with you in order to process on November 5. Marshals are checking and you will be asked to leave the procession if you don’t have both of these with you. You will also be denied access to the firesite and fireworks.
