Organisers of the annual New Year’s Day event said it had been a huge success and made up for the disappointment after last year’s postponement.

Although it is a free event, bucket collectors were out in force to fundraise for charity.

Last year’s event, which was postponed for a week due to the weather, raised a total of £9,000, half of which was given to charities with the rest going towards funding this year’s display.

Fireworks committee chairman, Jim Bond, said there had been no danger of a repeat of last year’s postponement.
