BONFIRE NIGHT: Sadness as second bonfire and fireworks event cancelled in Gedling borough due to bad weather

Latest event cancelled due to 'safety concerns' as a result of the recent bad weather


Papplewick and Linby Bonfire group have announced the cancellation of their event on November 4.

The announcement was made on social media stating “due to safety reasons of the playing field, the car parking field and the weather forecast, we have made the decision to cancel the event”

It is the second event to be cancelled in the borough as a result of the recent bad weather. Woodborough Community Association (WCA) also recently announced the cancellation of their annual fireworks display due to the heavy rainfall.


The WCA announced on social media that “The village experienced a month’s worth of rain in just one day a week ago and the sports field, like many other areas of our beautiful village, has still not quite recovered from this event.

“Unfortunately, the forecast is for us to receive another 3 weeks’ worth of rain before the weekend so the WCA have taken the difficult decision to cancel this year’s fireworks display.”

The annual bonfire night event at Mellish Rugby Club in Mapperley was also recently cancelled for becoming so popular that it was no longer safe to manage.

Visitor numbers had hugely increased over the last two years after the annual display at Forest Recreation Ground was cancelled by Nottingham City Council.
