The wind eased off and it was almost a clear sky for the annual Rusthall bonfire and fireworks display. An excellent display which had some features I had not seen before.
Congratulations to the organising committee, not only for the bonfire and the display, but also for organising the volunteers to marshal road closures as a consequence of the decision of Kent police not to provide officers to police traffic during the torchlight procession. The use of barriers for the first time to close roads worked very well.
I spied the chairman of the parish council and one of our borough councillors working to ensure public safety. Well done.
