MEMBERS of Edzell Village Improvement Society (EVIS) are pleased to report the success of their recent bonfire and fireworks night.
The event went well and was exceptionally well-attended, with numbers estimated around 2,000 people.
There was no anti-social behaviour or vandalism, with good support from the local police. With the Edzell streets packed with cars, the bonfire was lit at 6.30 pm and the fireworks began at around 6.45 pm, lasting around 40 minutes.
EVIS would like to thank GAP Instruction/Morrison Construction for donating the fencing for the event and all the volunteers on the night who made the event a success.
Traditionally, there is no entry charge, but EVIS relies on donations from the public, in collection buckets.
The biggest thank you must go to the environmental services department of Angus Council, who must have come during the night.
As usual, members stayed with the fire until the early hours of Sunday morning and came back armed with litter pickers to find Edzell Muir had been cleaned and Angus Council’s borrowed bins were emptied and stacked neatly in the pavilion.
Edzell Village Improvement Society is struggling for membership and events such as the gala in Edzell may not continue if the membership does not increase.
The EVIS annual general meeting will be in January and members are urged to come forward and join EVIS and support local events.
