Ninfield got the bonfire season underway in the Hastings and Rother area in spectacular style on Saturday.

The Society enjoyed a fine dry night for their big event, which saw bonfire societies from across the county converging on the village to take part in a torchlit procession down the lanes.

Taking part were societies from Hastings, Rye, Battle, Staplecross, Robertsbridge and Northiam as well as a number of drumming groups including Stix, Section Five and Ninfield’s own drummers.

Ninfield Bonfire Society has gone from strength to strength since forming back in 2009 , placing the village firmly on the Sussex Bonfire map.

This year saw a move from the recreation ground to a new fire-site and people enjoyed a massive bonfire and firework display.

The Society holds its next meeting on Wednesday October 21 at Ninfield Working Men’s Club.

New members are always welcome and assistance is needed helping with activities throughout the year, preparing for the big night.

These include helping to set up and organise fund raising events; torch and faggot making; stewarding at the bonfire or walking with a collection bucket.

This Saturday (October 17) the focus switches to Hastings, with a torch-lit procession along the seafront and Old Town and a giant bonfire on the beach.
