A Suffolk town has issued an “urgent” appeal for people to volunteer at community events including the upcoming fireworks display.

Framlingham’s “fireworks spectacular” with be held on Saturday, November 4, at the Pageant Field in Badingham Road, with profits going towards other events, such as the soap box race.

For such events to continue, Framlingham Town Council said “more people are urgently needed” to help with organising and on the day.

At this year’s event, Kimbolton Fireworks will be returning for “another memorable display” and some “unique effects”.

There will also be a designated area for sparklers, which must be bought on the night, refreshments including mulled wine, Earl Soham beer. Hall Farm Butchers’ burgers and hotdogs and more.

Framlingham Guides will be serving hot soup and drinks.

Tickets can be bought for a reduced price of £5 for adults £2.50 for children from the town council or library in The Old Court House, Bridge Street, where people can also find out more about volunteering.
