Bonfire Procession

Admin —  October 20, 2014

The Bonfire Procession is this coming Saturday and we’d love you to come and take part. Please meet at Littlehampton Baptist Church by 6.30pm. Wear dark or animal print clothing, or an animal onesie, or anything you feel comfortable walking in!  We need people to carry the collection buckets, hand out flyers and hold the banner, as well as carrying the puppets, so there’s something for everyone.

If you don’t think you or a family member could make it the whole way round, you could arrange to swap with somebody part way along the route.  There will be plenty of opportunities to hand over the props/buckets and we understand it can be a long time for some people.

Contact Fliss Jay if you have any questions.
