Remember, remember, the third of November
Saltford School PTA host their regular Family Fireworks Display on Friday 3rd November on the school field.
The event is a much needed fundraiser for the school. We understand that nearby residents with pets may wish to be aware that this is taking place. The school gates will open for those attending at 5:15pm. Families attending have been encouraged to walk to the event to avoid congestion on the roads around the school. The firework display will start at 6:30pm and last for approx 12 minutes. The PTA are delivering leaflets to roads around the school itself prior to the event but we would be grateful if you could share the information above with neighbours who may not be on social media.
Gates will close at 6.15pm, and all food stalls will also close at 6.15pm to allow everyone to enjoy watching the fireworks.
Arriving: the entrance is through the main school gate on Claverton Road (all other gates will be closed). Access to the field will be via the front door of the school, adjacent to the office. Please have evidence of your purchase with you on arrival. You will need to show this to gain entry to the display. The fireworks will start at 6:30pm but we recommend you arrive beforehand.
Toilets: toilets are available in the Year 6 block. Please pay attention to signage and restricted areas. The new building will be out of bounds on the night. The main block will be open for access to the field only.
Walking and parking: if you live within walking distance, please leave your car at home, and come on foot. If you need to bring a car, we ask that you avoid parking on Claverton Road. The road must remain congestion free for emergency vehicle access. Please park considerately, and do not obstruct driveways or park dangerously.
Suitable clothing: please wear suitable clothing and footwear (boots or wellies) as the display viewing area will be outside on the grass in front of the Year 6 huts.
First aid: this is kindly provided by Dr Claire Pugh and will be in classroom JG in the Year 6 block.
Lost persons: the lost persons meeting point will be in classroom JG in the Year 6 block. Please ensure that children know where to go in the unlikely event that they get separated from you.
Safety: do not bring your own fireworks, bangers or sparklers on to the site; alcohol is not permitted at this event and any brought onto the site will be confiscated. No alcohol will be sold at the event.
Leaving the event: after the fireworks display, or in the event of an emergency, exit the event through the main school gate or the side gate by Tiddlers. The playground will be completely out of bounds
