Some 11,000 people enjoyed the annual firework display and bonfire on Saffron Walden Common on Saturday, November 5, organised by Saffron Walden Round Table.
Our photographer, Celia Bartlett went down to the Common in the wet of the of the morning as the volunteers had just finished building the magnificent bonfire, which from her post on Twitter was reminiscent of Ely Cathedral rising up from the mists.
The volunteers started work at 8am removing the turf before building the bonfire, finishing at noon. They were back on The Common on Sunday morning, clearing the remains of the bonfire, replacing the turf and doing a litter sweep, working hard for the town. The organiser of the volunteers this year was Matt Baker.
As well as the fireworks, the evening included food stalls and a funfair. Entry was free with a bucket collection for charities and good causes helped by Saffron Walden Round Table.
