Our Next Event
Fireworks are on tonight!
Saturday November 2nd

Fireworks 2019
The Lions' Fireworks display this year is on November 2nd at 7pm in the Meadows. 
Two Tigers will again be putting on one of their award winning displays so something to look forward to!
Over the past five years the cost of fireworks has roughly doubled because of the weakness of the pound and improved Health and Safety regulations in China.  We have kept our prices the same for a number of years, but with over £4,000 worth of fireworks this year, we need to make what we hope you agree, are small increases to admission charges.
So on the gate, adults will be £6 and children under 16 £2 – an increase of a £1.  However we are also introducing a family ticket for two adults and two children under 16 at £15.
Another way that you can save money is to buy tickets in advance.  These will be available from Shields DIY, The Pet Emporium, Ron’s Pets, and Fairway Furniture - adults: £5  and under 16s: £1.50.
The Lions organise this event so that everyone can see a safe and spectacular display.  Our aim is always to raise money for charity but this event is more about covering our costs so that we don’t compromise all the good causes we want to support.
Hope the weather improves for November 2nd!

Trees of Light
Without mentioning the Ch word…..!  it is time to be thinking about the Trees of Light that every year shine so brilliantly on the Tavistock Town Hall!

In the past people have asked us if the Trees of Light could celebrate life in a more general way, so as well as celebrating the memory of a loved one, could they also celebrate a birth or a special birthday or indeed any happy event. 

This year, then, we are extending the focus of the Trees of Light to be a Celebration of Life so do feel free to sponsor lights in whatever way you would like.

ALL of the proceeds are donated to charity.  We are again supporting the two Derriford charities for Prostate and Breast Cancer care. Our third will be a children’s charity, Derriford Children’s Cancer Service.

 Morris Brothers are, once again, generously covering all our administrative expenses and South West Lakes Trust are sponsoring the trees.    Tavistock Town Council and Tavistock Times Gazette will be giving us their support and, as usual, a list of sponsors will be published in the Christmas edition of the paper.

 The lights will be switched on at 7.00pm on Friday 29th November 2019

Our next BBQ will be for the Tavi Specials!
