We’re just having a little bonfire and firework display this year, and of course Arnold is in charge. He’s checked the bonfire for hedgehogs and the like, and we’ve all gathered to watch.
Ooh, it’s lit up nicely! Just the thing on a cold evening. Nano decided the safest way to watch was to sit in Peggy’s handbag.
First of all, Arnold’s lit the Roman Candles. Don’t they look nice, like sparkly fountains. And quiet too. All our fireworks are quiet, so as not to scare anyone.
Now for the Catherine Wheel. We love the way it whizzes round.
A little break for sparklers – Ernest and Vincent are just waving theirs around, but Fury always likes to write her name.
And now, the finale – rockets! Oooh! Aaaahhh! Ooooooooh! We hope you’ve enjoyed our fireworks, and had a safe November the 5th!
I was outside, servicing me truck earlier, when Winston came by, He said he’d got something I might be interested in…
Cor! Look at the size of that rocket! I’ve gotta have that to let off tomorrow night! Imagine lighting that blue touchpaper!
So me and Winston negotiated a price and the deal was done.
Everyone who came by was very excited about the prospect of such a big rocket.
Oh heck, Arnold’s coming! Quick, stand in front of it, he’ll have a fit!
What’s that Arnold? Nah, we’re just hanging out, you know. Nothing goin’ on.
Drat, he’s spotted it….
Well, he’s given us all a lecture on the dangers of fireworks and then he’s only gone and confiscated it!
I’ll have to get me biscuit back off Winston… Winston! Come back ‘ere!
It’s time for our bonfire! Peggy and Gino, who have a particular aversion to fire (being wooden, you see), have a special screen to stand behind to watch. We wouldn’t want any accidents!

We’re getting ready for our bonfire and fireworks tonight! Winston and Vincent are building the bonfire and Arnold is keeping an eye out for any unsuitable materials. We don’t want any nasty fumes.

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.
