Lindfield Bonfire Society 2016 Celebration: Lindfield Bonfire Society wishes to say a massive thankyou to everyone who attend our 5th November Celebration. We were delighted to be joined in our procession by members of Chailey and Burgess Hill Bonfire Societies, Burgess Hill Marching Youth, Lindfield Scouts and our fancy dress competition entrants.

Encouraged by good weather, there was a large turn out for our night which we hope will be reflected in the street collection.

Our fancy dress completion was packed out, and the streets and Common were full those who came to see our torch lit procession through the village, followed by the bonfire prayer and lighting of the bonfire. The evening was completed by our Grand Firework display, which was well received by all and we have had many thankyou’s and positive feedback from the public saying how much they enjoyed the night.

The Committee of Lindfield Bonfire Society wish to say thanks to everyone who helped make our celebration happen, in particular the following organisations and groups:

Comber’s Trust, The Red Cross, Sussex Police, West Sussex Fire & Rescue Services, The Rotary Club, Court Meadow RDA, Lindfield Parish Council, Mid-Sussex District Council, SERCO, Phoenix Security, The Tail End Charlie Team, The ‘Uganda’ Explorer Scouts, Lindfield Scouts, The Pyro Teams of Lindfield and Chailey Bonfire Societies, Aurora Fireworks, Glyn Thomas & Son Butchers, all the volunteers who collected and help on the night, those who provided support before during and after our event, our sponsors and donors …and of course the Lindfield Bonfire Boys and Girls!

COOP STORES: Something very exciting is happening alongside the new branding of the local Coop Stores in and around Lindfield, Cuckfield and Haywards Heath.

For those of us with a loyalty card, we can now earn a 5% bonus on all Coop purchases, and the Co op will then give 1% of what we spend on its products to local community projects selected by Co op stores near our homes. You can choose which cause your own 1% goes to. If you don’t, it’s shared out between the causes of your nearest Coop.

At the moment Lindfield Arts Festival and Time 4 Children are the two local projects of choice - Lindfield Arts Festival and Time 4 Children.

To ensure that the charities benefit from your regular shopping at the Coop, please register your new blue Coop card online at and click which charity you wish to support.
