New move in fight to save fireworks

MOVES by the Cowes business community to save the town’s fireworks display have stepped up a gear.

The Cowes Business Association has written to the body’s 80 members asking them to pledge cash so the traditional end of Cowes Week fireworks display can go ahead.

Last month, the County Press revealed how the display, which has traditionally marked the end of August’s world-famous sailing regatta for more than 150 years, could be axed because event organisers would not stump up the full £50,000 cost.

Organisers Cowes Week Ltd questioned why competitors should pay for the fireworks, which were watched by an estimated 5,000 people last year, and said they were instead paying £5,000 towards the event.
