This year the summer fireworks are special to the town as except for November the 5th the previous council dropped them due to budget cuts. Now, the new authority has stepped in and granted the funding for the summer displays.

For the keen photographers amongst you, make sure you head up to the Nothe Fort a little earlier for some fantastic and unique shots.
