Pallets needed for bonfire
People are being urged to donate their unwanted pallets to help build a huge bonfire at Himley Park for Saturday November 3.
Bosses at the Dudley Council-owned beauty spot are appealing for help from local companies who can donate unbroken, wooden pallets to build the giant bonfire for this year’s event.
The hero themed bonfire and fireworks spectacular is one of the biggest in the region and a 20 per cent discount is available to people who book online in advance.
Councillor Ian Kettle, cabinet member for planning and economic development, said:
“The fireworks and bonfire display at Himley is the largest council-run display in the country.
“Every year the event is tremendously supported by local companies donating huge numbers of pallets and we hope this time it will be no different.
“Anyone who can help is urged to get in touch as soon as possible.”
Only wooden pallets can be accepted and not garden rubbish, tree trunks or old furniture.
Pallets cannot be collected but will be accepted at Himley Hall from Monday 10 September.
Companies wishing to dispose of their pallets that are able to deliver to the park should call 01384 817834 to make prior arrangements.
