Fireworks on and off the pitch for Swaffham Rugby Club as they prepare for special weekend




It will be the ninth annual Swaffham Rugby Club fireworks display on Sunday which includes a barbecue, bar and stalls.

Gates open at 5pm ahead of the display starting at 7pm with organisers expecting 800 to 1,000 people to turn up based on previous years.

Eric Nye, of Swaffham Rugby Club, said most of the proceeds go to the club.

He added: “A couple of years ago we almost had too many people but obviously it depends on the weather. You can’t guarantee people will turn up.”

It is set to be a special weekend for the club with the doors also being opened tomorrow morning to screen the World Cup final between England and South Africa.

The club will be opening at 8am with a cooked breakfast being served.

And Mr Nye believes England’s success will result in more people attending the club.

He said: “In rugby terms, we think more people will join. In 2003 [the last time England won the World Cup], there was a growth in players with more kids getting involved.

“People will be able to watch the rugby and hopefully have a good night, which depends on England winning of course. You have got to be confident for England after thrashing the All Blacks!”

Fireworks tickets cost £5 for adults, £3 for OAPs/children, while under 5s are free.
