Skies to light up over Glenrothes

Expect a spectacular show at Gilvenbank
Expect a spectacular show at Gilvenbank

This year’s town fireworks display is set to go with a bang at Gilvenbank Park on Saturday.

And organisers are hoping that the community will come out and show its support as it has for the event in previous years.

As well as the spectacular display the fun fair will be in attendance again this year.

Matthew McWilliams, who has set up an organising committee along with representatives from the Glenrothes and Levenmouth Scouts, said that the event is not organised by Fife Council as people often think.

He said: “It’s all down to a team of dedicated volunteers.

“We hope that everyone will come along and enjoy the display.”

For over 30 years the town’s firework event was organised by the Glenrothes Round Table at Warout. In 2012 the event moved to Riverside Park before settling at Gilvenbank Park last year, where the event will take place again in 2014.

Saturday’s display will begin at 7.00 p.m. Entry is free although there will be a collection at the event, with all donations welcome. Money collected on the night will be put straight back into funding next year’s display.

Those attending the display are reminded that for safety reasons, they must not bring their own fireworks or sparklers to the event.
