It is with great sadness that I have the misfortune to confirm that the HDBS committee have taken the decision to defer our 2020 event.
Due to the restrictions that we have found ourselves living in currently with the covid-19 pandemic we have been unable to raise sufficient funds to put on our event and support the future of our society.
We feel a great sense of responsibility to our members, visiting societies and the community of Heathfield. To raise the risk of infection is something we would not feel happy to do.
Like many local businesses and organisations, covid-19 has affected us financially, meaning all eyes will firmly be on fundraising once restrictions are lifted.
After bringing Bonfire back to Heathfield last year and seeing the growth of our society this really was a tough yet correct decision for us.
On behalf of HDBS I’d like to thank you for your support and understanding. We will be back and with a special surprise that we have been working on since January.Steve Thomas
Heathfield & District Bonfire Society Chairman
