The 35th annual Sherborne Castle Fireworks will take place on Saturday November 8th 2014; gates open at 5pm. The event will once again look to enhance its reputation as one of the best shows and biggest shows in the South West. The event which regularly attracts over 9000 people offers a full evening of entertainment including a fireworks show, a bonfire, fairground rides, food stalls and live music. There is something for all the family to enjoy.

Gates open at 5pm, with the bonfire lighting at 7pm and the fireworks show starting at 7.30pm.

Brent Mitchell, Director of Events Crew continues: “The Sherborne Castle Fireworks is run by a local team for the benefit of local people and that sets this event apart. All the money raised stays within the local area and we think that is a great selling point when people are making the decision of which show to see.” Sherborne Castle Fireworks brings together all parts of the community into this stunning location and thanks must once again go to the Wingfield-Digby family, owners of Sherborne Castle for their support of the event and use of the castle grounds. Tickets are available online and also available at selected shops within Sherborne Town including the Tourist Information Centre.

NHS Blood and Transplant Blood Donor Sessions

NHS Blood and Transplant is asking blood donors in Yeovil to make an appointment to donate blood to help keep stocks healthy throughout the autumn months. Dates of sessions taking place in Yeovil are - Tuesday 21st of October 2014, Tuesday 11th of November 2014, Monday 01st of December 2014, and Tuesday 16th and Wednesday 17th of December 2014.

Although overall blood use within the NHS has reduced, thanks to improvements in clinical and surgical practices, hospitals and patients still rely on more than 7,000 people attending a donation session every day across England and North Wales.

It is important that vital blood stocks are maintained at all times, as red blood cells have a shelf life of just 35 days and platelets a shelf life of only seven days. NHS Blood and Transplant needs to collect enough blood in the right quantities to meet patient needs and regular donors are crucial in enabling us to do so. 

You can register as a donor, find out whether we’ve got a session coming up in your area and book an appointment to donate whenever and wherever you are by calling 0300 1232323 or by visiting the website or by using our app on your Android, Windows or Apple device. To download an app for your device, search 'NHSGiveBlood' in the app store.
