Do you really want fireworks in Arbroath?

The group attempting to set up a Fireworks for Arbroath have been forced to draw a line in the sand after only a handful of people turned up to the public meeting last night (Monday).

After a 400 strong show of support online the dismal turn out was a disappointing start to the project.

Despite the pitiful attendance, councillors and previous organisers discussed a number of possibilities for a new display in 2015, including five possible venues, size of the display and the type of attractions.

It is hanging in the balance, however until the people of Arbroath commit to the project.

“We need to get back to basics, it is about the community and fireworks and nothing else,” said driving force of the project, Karren Cuthill.

“People need to understand that if they all want something then they need to get up and do something about it.”

“The whole town is complaining, but without the community backing it, it will not be feasible.”

A final date will be set to raise a target figure, at the next public meeting at the Meadowbank Inn on Monday, November 24, in which Arbroathians will be given another chance to get on board.
