HUNDREDS of families celebrated a belated Bonfire Night with a firework display in South Elmsall.

The sky was filled with a variety of brightly coloured fireworks on Saturday above Minsthorpe baths playing fields, on Ash Grove.

As well as the 20- minute display, families enjoyed fairground rides and stalls

Brenda Graham, chair of the SESKU Festival Committee said there was a fantastic turn out.

She said: “It was phenomenal, everyone I have spoken to have said how much they enjoyed it.”

“But I must thank South Elmsall Town Council and Upton Parish Council for their kind donations to help pay for the evening.”

The committee decided to hold it a week after Bonfire Night so they did not have to compete with other displays.
