West Kirby Sailing Club will run its annual fireworks display on Saturday 5th November, starting at 18.30. The event has been run every year since 1946. The fireworks display started just after the last war, for club members children, and to form bonds & relationships with the local community, throwing open the club doors to all their neighbours and in doing so to thank them for their forbearance. For over 70 years the bonfire / fireworks has been a major event on the Wirral and even more important over the last decade with all other events disappearing. Today the event, run in Aid of the RNLI, is a contributor to the total running costs of the Hoylake and West Kirby Life Boat Station.
