It will come as no surprise to find that Allington’s bonfire and fireworks display have been cancelled. The playing field fundraisers don’t have any choice in the matter given the current Covid restrictions. The Parish Council has considered the possibility of a bonfire to allow residents to dispose of material they had saved for the event. However a majority of councillors have decided that this shall not be permitted. Their concerns centre around fire supervision, clean up costs and the availability of waste disposal facilities provided by the District Council.
