Dukes Meadows hosts first successful fireworks display

On Wednesday 5th November 2014 Dukes Meadows hosted their first fireworks evening.

The evening kicked off with a round of Night Golf, in which both children and adults participated. The course was lit up beautifully and there were some tremendous shots in what was a great pre event to the fireworks.

Inside there were some fun tennis, golf and table tennis games and competitions with a colouring contest for the little ones. Drinks were being served and the food was rapidly consumed from the BBQ.

With over 500 people gathered on our golf greens the main event exploded from the 5th hole.  Those who had waited patiently were treated to a dazzling, colourful and thunderous display lasting around 15 minutes. It was fantastic to see such a large turnout and the round of applause that followed the last firework showed the audience had thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Thankfully the traffic leaving wasn’t too bad and there were no disturbances on what was a hugely successful night.

Dukes Meadows General Manager Kathryn Evans said:

“What a great way to start what we hope will be an annual event.  It really was a spectacular turn out, slightly bigger crowds than we anticipated and I think I send a message to Mother Nature for holding back the rain!

We had to delay the start slightly due to the number of later arrivals and I would like to show a huge appreciation for everyone that came along and their patience for what was a great display by Absolutely Fabulous Fireworks Company.

I am not sure how we can top the event for next year, but it will certainly be a fun challenge!”

On behalf of all the team at Dukes Meadows Golf & Tennis, we would like to thank you all for making last night such a wonderful occasion and are already looking forward to next year’s display.
