2015 Fireworks date confirmed

It’s that time of year again, and plans are already afoot for the Caterham and District Round Table annual bonfire and firework display.

The date for your diaries has been confirmed as Saturday 7th November, and as with recent years, the evening will kick off with a torchlight procession leaving from Westway Library.

Round Table Firework Officer Haydn Lamb says “we had a great display last year, and we’re planning to really wow the crowds this year.”

A ‘Build a guy competition’ is being held with a first prize of £50, with runners up cash prizes and free tickets for the winners. All entries must be delivered to the Dene field Caterham by 2.00pm on the day of the event.

Gates to the field open at 6pm. A torch lit parade will depart from the Westway Library at 6.30pm, so people need to get there early to buy a torch. The fire will be lit at 7.15pm. All proceeds will go to local charities.

Want to help?

Caterham Round Table is always looking for new members and our annual Bonfire and Fireworks Display is a perfect opportunity for you to come along and get involved. We’ll be at Dene field from 9.00 am on the day and, if you wish, you could help with building the bonfire and setting out the field, and meet the members in casual and comfortable surroundings; the day is hard work, but also very rewarding.

Caterham Round Table funds new electric assistance chair

Caterham Round Table has recently funded an electric assistance chair for Hayes Primary School. This helps children suffering from physical issues to remain included in mainstream schooling. Even at a cost approaching £3000, this is money well spent when it helps to improve the well-being of youngsters!

The members of Caterham Round Table also raised about £6500 for St Catherine’s hospice two weeks ago at the Winter ball (which was a great night out!), and we’ve also just donated £1000 to the Dene Hospital as well!

All of this money has been raised through events such as the Fireworks, Beer Festival and Winter Ball, all of which are hard work, but great fun to be involved in.

Do you want to join us for our twice-monthly meeting (a drink over dinner), have some fun and raise money for our local community? Then fill in the contact page at www.caterhamtable.com

You won’t regret it, we promise!

Caterham Round Table Annual Bonfire and Fireworks display Saturday 1st November 2014

The Caterham and District Round Table aims to create a bigger seasonal bang for this year’s fireworks display at Caterham Dene Field, on Church Hill on Saturday 1st November 2014. The annual bonfire and firework display together with the hugely popular torchlight procession are one of the highlights of the year in Caterham.

Round Table Firework Officer Pete Dommett says “the display has a strong track record of attracting a significant amount of local support and last year we brought in a new firework display company (‘The Knights of Fire Fireworks’) and they really wowed the crowd.” This year they have been brought back with some new surprises and we have deliberately kept the prices family friendly so tickets purchased in advance are priced at £4.00 compared to £5.00 on the night. This is a charity fund-raising event and it is the local area that benefits as a result.

A ‘Build a guy competition’ is being held with a first prize of £50, with runners up cash prizes and free tickets for the winners. All entries must be delivered to the Dene field Caterham by 1.00pm on the day of the event.

In addition to the fireworks, the team will be providing music, popcorn, hot food and drinks, novelty glow items, mulled wine plus a small funfair for children.

Gates to the field open at 6pm. A torch lit parade will depart from the Westway Library at 6.30pm,  so people need to get there early to buy a torch. The fire will be lit at 7.15pm.  All proceeds will go to local charities.

The 2014 Waller Pain results are in..


…and the course record (1:14) still stands, but it went mighty close this time. The morning of 8th June saw 49 competitors from near and far gather at the bottom of Waller Lane in Caterham to tackle the infamous Waller Pain. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and there was a scent of fierce (but friendly)competition in the air! Despite the heat, we saw a hard fought competition, with not one, but 2 category records broken, so well done to all who took part, and we hope to see you all again next year…
