The Lymm and District Round Table are fired up for their annual charity bonfire, which returns on Saturday November 7th.
This year’s event is once again sponsored by Kids Planet Day Nursery on Eagle Brow and held at Lymm Rugby Club on Crouchley Lane. It will feature a children’s fireworks display at 7pm and a main fireworks display at 7:45pm. The doors will open at 6pm with the bonfire lighting at 6:30pm.
“We raised a record amount for charity last year – a massive £13.5k – so there’s certainly lots to live up to!” said Gary Parsons, organiser and Round Table member. “The earlier bonfire lighting went down well last year so we’ve stuck to the same format this time around, plus there’ll be the customary rides and food stalls.”
Tickets will be on sale by The Cross, Lymm, on the Saturday mornings preceding bonfire night. Advanced ticket prices are £12 for a family (up to two adults and two children), £6 for adults and £3 for children, while on the door charges are £15 for family, £7 adult and £3 child.
For more information call Gary on 07968 771441 or email email@example.com

Whilst many of the world's largest conurbations have underground railways Lymm has, since the withdrawal of rail services in 1962, unfortunately gone without!
However, here is a faithfully drawn map based on the geography of Lymm including where the stations would likely be! The names of the lines are based on local geography/history, designation of the water courses, Lymm Dam and canals etc. Additionally water boat and cable car services are also shown.
From the map you will of course be able to work out that a journey from L.A. (Latchford area of course!) to Lymm RFC would involve a six station journey to Brookfield, a short hop on the Bollin to Central and six stops down on the Domville to Lymm RFC (which of course has extra services on match day)!
This map would make a lovely display in any home with its vibrant colours, interesting local information and, above all, it is a bit of fun for us all to imagine "what if" and of course MIND THE GAP!
The map of Lymm Underground is a high quality fine art print (A2 sized) on 180 gsm art paper suitable for display and costs £20.
It is available from Mike Cochrane either from eBay or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If ordering directly by email please leave your name, address and phone number and if you are in the Lymm area the map will be delivered to you directly.
