UPS® and the Village Hall Firework Display
Remember, remember the 5th November, that’s when the Diseworth Village Hall puts on its annual firework display. This year the weather was perfect which meant the event was extremely well attended with around 200 people were treated to a great display of pyrotechnics.
As with most things in village life, events like these are arranged by groups of willing volunteers and Diseworth is no exception. In parallel with the spectacular display of fireworks hot food and drinks were to be available in the Hall for the many spectators. As usual the Village Hall Committee needed help from around the village to make it happen and thanks must go to all that gave up their valuable time to put on this brilliant show.
This year it was recognised that some additional help was required so we were assisted by four UPS employees based at East Midlands Airport. The company runs a volunteer scheme where employees assist local charities, they are not paid for this work but it is encouraged to engender good community relations with the company’s neighbours.
The helpers from UPS provided additional marshalling and supervision, even taking responsibility for lighting the children’s sparklers and, perhaps the most valuable of all assistance with the big clear up afterwards. The Village Hall Committee, and all involved, thank them for their contribution to the evening and were pleased to hear that the four, hard-working crew enjoyed themselves too.
