Picture of poster for Woodhouse Moor bonfire night 2012.
I noticed this poster in the trees on Woodhouse Moor yesterday promoting the Bonfire Night Fireworks in the park here in Leeds.
Remember, remember the fifth of November goes the old rhyme. Leeds city council run bonfires and fireworks across Leeds in many of the cities parks.
I have been to the fireworks held at Roundhay Park several times and I thought they were great.
The fireworks at Woodhouse Moor are on Monday the 5th of November with the bonfire at 7pm and fireworks at 7.30pm.
Guy Fawkes whose plot is remembered in the old rhyme, was born in York and was executed in 1606 for treason in trying to blow up parliament with gunpowder would be perhaps surprised that more than 400 years later he is still remembered. Almost every week here in the UK there is another story about the misdeeds of our politicians, showing if nothing else how little they understand about how they are viewed by the populace here. They just do not get it! First it was the expenses scandal, followed by flipping their houses to gain the most money and to me this problem seems to be common to far to many of them.
