A SPECTACULAR show is on the cards for this year's Verulamium Park fireworks display.

Around 20,000 visitors are expected to attend the event on November 7, which will include a half-hour sequential display of fireworks and attractions such as a fun fair, music and plenty of hot food stalls.

Giffen Group, an electrical installation, maintenance and engineering company based in St Albans, is sponsoring the fundraising event and their nominated charity, The Cancer Treatment and Research Trust, will be the ultimate beneficiary.

Giffen Group chairman Jo Giffen said: "We've been based in St Albans since our foundation in 1909 and the firework display will be a great way to celebrate our centenary."

District council culture chief, Cllr Melvyn Teare, said a lot of hard work has gone into organising the event: "We've got around 400 volunteers helping out on the night and we really do rely on their help.

"It's a super family occasion and we're encouraging everyone to come along and show their support."

The Verulamium Park firework display starts at 7.30pm, with gates opening at 6.30pm, and tickets cost £5 per adult, £2 per child, or £10 for a family ticket. Tickets can be purchased in advance at The Alban Arena or from the box office on 01727 844488.

Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
