A PRIMARY school in Northwich is throwing open its gates to the public for its fifth annual Fireworks Fiesta.

Leftwich Community Primary School, on Old Hall Road, will be illuminating the skies on Monday, November 6, with all proceeds going to support the education of its 178 pupils.

One of the major events in the school’s calendar, the emphasis is on keeping it local and affordable, says Carly Marmion, chairman of Leftwich Primary Parent Teacher Association.

She added: "This event has become a pivotal moment on Leftwich Primary's calendar, where we can invite all our neighbours to our school for a celebration.

“This marks the fifth year we've organized this display, and each year, more people attend because it's local and affordable."

Fireworks Fiesta kicks off at 5pm with pre-display entertainment, and an opportunity to buy food and drinks from a variety of stalls.

Tickets are £3 per person, and can be bought directly from Leftwich, Kingsmead, and Davenham primary schools.

Cheshire West and Northwich town councillor, Andrew Cooper, who is a parent at the school, said: "I'm thrilled to back the Firework Fiesta, right here in my ward.

“This is a fantastic event for our community and our neighbours to enjoy a brilliant display in a safe environment.

“I was delighted to fund this from my own member’s budget, and the full support of the Northwich Town Council ensures accessibility to neighbouring communities, allowing everyone to relish this event without the need for extensive travel while contributing to a local school."
