The fabulous Mountfield Family Fireworks and Bonfire Night will take place on 5th November 2021 at the Bonfire Field in Solomon's Lane.
The gates will open at 6pm, donations at the gate, burgers/hot dogs and refreshments available.
This is a community event, organised by Mountfield Village Hall, and all are welcome.

This opens in July 2021 and through the programme farmers and land managers can be supported to carry out projects that:

  • support nature recovery
  • mitigate the impacts of climate change
  • provide opportunities for people to discover, enjoy and understand the landscape and cultural heritage
  • support nature-friendly, sustainable farm businesses

This is a programme of funding for one-off projects covering these areas of work, not an agri-environment scheme.

The programme is part of Defra's Agricultural Transition Plan.  It has been developed by Defra with the support of the AONB and National Park staff from across the country.
