The Medway sky will be illuminated with colourful fireworks next weekend for Guy Fawkes’ Night. Medway Council’s annual free public display at the Great Lines in Marlborough Road, Gillingham, takes place on Saturday, 1 November. The Mayor of Medway Cllr David Carr will light the bonfire at 7pm and the display will start at 7.30pm. The event has grown each year and attracts more than 50,000 people, making it the safest place to enjoy the festivities. Marlborough Road will be closed during the event and there are no parking facilities and toilets on site. Please note, there will be no funfair this year. Medway Council’s Portfolio Holder for Community Services Cllr Howard Doe said: “Medway Council’s annual event gives everybody a fantastic display and a great time in a safe environment.” Call 01634 333333 or visit www.medway.gov.uk/events for more details.
