THE popular Duff House fireworks display takes place on Saturday to celebrate Bonfire night.

Organised by the Banff and District Round Table, it is the biggest annual event the group holds.

The bonfire will be lit at 6.30pm and the fireworks display, which is promised to be the most spectacular to date, will start at 7pm.

John Ollason from the Round Table said: "It is a really popular event and we are looking forward to it.

"It would be great if we get an even bigger turn out this year as all the money raised gets donated throughout local groups.

"As well as the display, Deveron FM will be in attendance providing music, and hot food and drinks will be available from caterers.

"People attending should arrive in good time as parking and access around the area can be quite congested. No parking is available in the grounds apart from a limited number of spaces for disabled badge holders.

"For safety reasons the size of the fire will be limited and no collections or tipping of wood for fire will take place.

"Sparklers are discouraged due to the potential injury risk to users of the rugby and football pitches if they are not properly disposed of.

"Organised events like this are much safer than organising your own display."

The event is funded by donations, sales of glow sticks on the night and sponsorship.

Mr Ollason added: "Any donations from people attending will be gratefully received to ensure the display can continue to be successful.

"The round table is always looking for members to join the group and anybody interested in getting involved should get in contact."

Round Table groups meet every week and give members the chance to try activities.
