It will be the first time that the school will be holding a fireworks display, organised by the school PTA, to provide extra learning and social opportunities.

Headteacher Helen Davies said: "Funds raised by our PTA enables us to offer our pupils unique experiences and additional learning opportunities.

"It will also be a lovely social gathering for both our school and the local community."

The display will be by pyrotechnics company Fireworks Crazy.

Hopkins Homes, Greensleeves Care and the Orchards Green landowners are contributing to the event while Sainsbury's, Lisle Lane Ely, were also very keen to donate some refreshments to help raise additional funds.

Tickets are £10 for a family ticket (two adults and two children), or £5 per adult and £2 per child.
