Young and old were left mesmerised by the colourful sea of colours that transformed the sky for the family bonfire and firework display at Glebe Field.

Organised by the 1st Wickham Scout Group, who were selling luminous toys to raise funds for an international expedition, scores of people wrapped up warm for a chilly night with a warm drink or cup of soup at one of the refreshment stalls.

Others treated themselves to a delicious hot dog while gathering around the raging bonfire.
