Village fireworks go with a bang

Old Buckenham celebrates
The Old Buckenham 2000 Trust decided to bring back the annual fireworks display. The villagers, as usual, left buying tickets to the last minute but in the end hundreds of families gathered last night on the fields alongside of Doe Lane. It was a crisp dry evening, the bonfire was blazing and the stalls selling food and drink did a roaring trade.
A nearly full moon was rising when the display started. There were bangs, flashes and very colourful showers as the fireworks shot up into the sky. This was a very professional show and much appreciated by the large audience. Taking photographs of such displays does not show how impressive it was but does sometimes produce some strange flower-like images.
