PUPILS at Halyrude Primary School in Peebles got creative this week – designing the Guy which will be thrown onto the town’s bonfire.

Held by Peebles Round Table and sponsored by Stobo, the annual fireworks display will take place tomorrow (Saturday) at Victoria Park.

And organisers say they expect the event to be the “best ever”.

Chairman Chris Hilton told us: “Halyrude Primary have created the Guy for the bonfire this year and the Beltane Queen [Katy Blackwood] will be there on Saturday to press the button to start the firework display.

“We are looking forward to seeing as many people there for an extravaganza of light and music.”

The fire will be lit at 7pm and the fireworks will start at 7.30pm.

Chris added: “The light and music event is free to the public and will be a fantastic sight from inside Victoria Park.

“We expect it to be our best ever, with all donations on the night able to go to local good causes because of the generous sponsorship from Stobo.”

Members of the public are asked to follow the directions of the marshals during the evening.

And the Round Table is encouraging people not to park on or spectate from Kingsmeadows Road during the event.

Sparklers are not permitted, nor is adding material to the fire. But free glow bands will be given out on the night to visitors upon entering the park.

Elsewhere the the Rotary Club of Innerleithen, Walkerburn & Traquair will be holding its annual bonfire and firework display on Monday (November 5).

The event will take place in the field behind the Innerleithen Health Centre – with the fire lit at around 7pm and the firework display getting under way at 7.30pm.

Tickets, which cost £3 per person or £10 for a family, can be bought at the gate on the night or in the Co-op supermarket tomorrow (Saturday) morning.
