We will be open on Friday 1st December from 5:00pm until 8:00pm and on Saturday 2nd December from 11:00am until 3:00pm, with refreshments in support of Macmillan (cakes, mulled wine, tea and coffee).

Poynings Bonfire & Fireworks

Poynings bonfire and fireworks
Join Poynings for their bonfire and fireworks at the Blacksmith Field (behind Forge Garage) on Saturday 4th November. The procession will leave the Royal Oak at 6:25pm approximately. Lighting of the fire and fireworks will follow. Please give generously on the gate. If it follows the pattern of previous years, there will be some food and drink available but the Poynings authorities have yet to confirm that.

You can take material to the bonfire 9:00am–5:00pm, October 17th–November 1st. It must be taken to the bonfire site, not left on the Forge forecourt. Clean burning material only — wood, cardboard — but no tyres, plastic, metal, etc.
