Fantastic Fireworks

Last Friday evening went off with a bang as approximately 2000 people gathered at Cox Green for our joint annual fireworks display. The weather was drizzly but cleared in time for the start of the show and I must say that they were particularly spectacular this year!

The show was very well organised by the PTA and I would like to thank everyone involved for the meticulous planning that goes into setting up an event such as this. With a backdrop of fairground rides, food stalls and the amazing Cox green School Band, the evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

The event raised an impressive £1800 towards our PTA funds and the “Centre for the Arts” that we are aiming to achieve for all the children at Wessex. I would like to thank all the parents and staff who worked incredibly hard to make the event so successful – including the tidying up and ‘field pick’ on Saturday morning.
Well done.
