Preparing for Fireworks night!

Ofelia has a big pot on the stove and a big bowl of sugar

After the excitement of Halloween, we’re straight into preparations for our Bonfire. Arnold and Ernest are in charge of fireworks, and have been working with Fury to make a centrepiece.

Ernest is cutting the lengths of timber for the frame, Fury nails them together and Arnold sets up the fuse wire.

Esther and Ofelia are doing the catering – today they’re making toffee apples. Ofelia is heating the sugar for the toffee, while Esther puts the apples on sticks.

Winston and Vincent, as usual, went out looking for fire wood. Vincent sensibly went straight to the offcuts bin in the workshop, but I think Mrs Human might have to double check Winston’s finds…
