Robertsbridge brings local bonfire season to a close with a bang

Bonfire celebrations at Robertsbridge brought the local bonfire season to a rousing close on Saturday.

A dry but cold evening brought out good crowds to watch the torchlit procession down the High Street before gathering at the fire-site to watch the lighting of the bonfire and a spectacular fireworks display.
