Weather worries could see Stevenage Fireworks cancelled

RAIN and strong winds could put a dampener on tomorrow’s (Saturday) Stevenage Fireworks, after an announcement was made that if the weather is too bad, the display could be cancelled.

The Met Office has said that there could be high winds in the Stevenage area tomorrow.

Stevenage Borough Council (SBC) said that if it was too strong, it may have to cancel the Fairlands Valley Park display.

A spokesman for the council said: “If the winds are particularly severe, it may not be possible to hold the fireworks display at Fairlands Valley Park.

“While we do not wish to spoil anyone’s enjoyment of the event, it is important that visitors’ safety is not put at risk.”
