A charitable event and an amazing night

The Carshalton and Wallington fireworks display has been held for the past 53 years. It is one of the largest firework displays in the South East of England. The event is run by the Round Table who are an organisation who do events for the community. This year the money raised from the fireworks display went to Mencap, Cystic Fibrosis, Alzheimers, Sea Cadets, local Scout groups, Radio St.Helier, St.Johns Ambulance, Cricket for Change and more. Every year this organisation works together to provide an entertaining night for the community and helps causes.

The Round Table was ‘founded to give young men a place to meet, make friends, and exchange ideas, the Round Table is non-religious, non-political and non-sectarian, and has as much to offer men today as it did when it started in 1927.’

Every year they have held a fantastic fireworks display in Carshalton Park and this year they didn’t fail to keep up with expectations.

Even the bonfire is magnificent. Most people who go to the fireworks display in Carshalton Park usually stay until the end due to the bonfire being amazing. Furthermore, they used to put a small Guy Fawkes on top of the wooden structure. This was why everyone would wait until the whole thing caught light.

And as you can see from the two images above, once the fire began to grow, it did begin to set light to the grass next to it.

I’m glad I came home for Bonfire night this year as no one else can create the same ambiance that The Round Table do for the community in Carshalton.
