Penmaenmawr Sailing Club with the help of Brimstone Pyrotechnics, held its annual Community Bonfire and Fireworks display on Saturday the 8th November.

Club Secretary Glenn Williams said “We were lucky with the weather for the event after a few rainy moments during the day, but more than 500 people attended the club’s hour long event, and due to their kind donations we were able to raise £463.93 towards our Junior Sailing programme”.

Club Commodore Gerry Frobisher thanked all those who supported the Club including the Young Dragons/Dreigiau Ifanc, a team of sixteen 8 to 22 year olds, who gave up their Saturday to help prepare the event by helping to put up the barriers, build the bonfire, sell food and drink, marshal and collect donations. Mr Frobisher said “I would like to give a big thanks to Penmaenmawr Town Council for their kind sponsorship of the event and for the attendance of the Town’s Mayor Cllr Dafydd Lloyd-Borland.”nov8th2014
