Sowerby Bonfire 2012
This year saw the first communal village bonfire for many a year, organised by Ady & Harriet of the Church Stile Inn. Many people came and enjoyed the fireworks which were bought with donations. Safety was paramount at the event with fire marshalls, protective fencing and ambulance & paramedic facilities (which were thankfully not used) provided by Richard of Calder Rescue.

Not easy to photograph, especially when you're standing in the freezing cold on a sloping icy pavement!
