Bonfire & Fireworks

Cranleigh’s annual bonfire & fireworks has continued uninterrupted by wind, rain, storm and flood for 72 years. Over this time it has not only provided the village with a magnificent spectacle and great night out, but has generated many thousands of pounds for the Lions charity.  Sadly in 2020, Covid 19 has proved to be a hurdle that cannot be overcome. Faced with the risk that Guy Fawkes would escape this year, the Bonfire Boys led by newest recruit Mick Hammond, ably assisted by the Cranleigh Lions bonfire team, have ensured his capture.

The scene is set, Guy Fawkes was caught with his co-conspirators when they failed to obey the rule of 6, and brought to the place of execution on Cranleigh Common.

Cranleigh Lions & the Bonfire Boys have played their part, Guy Fawkes has been executed. We would love the good people of Cranleigh now to play their part.  We cannot put on any fireworks and we cannot walk the common with our collection buckets, but we desperately need funds to help those in need in our community.
