Fireworks for Arbroath was founded in November 2014.
That was the year Angus Council stopped providing organised fireworks displays for the community to attend.
A community group was set up, and fundraising began in earnest.
We held hugely successful displays at Inchcape Park in 2015 and 2016.
We then became victims of our own success and Inchape was deemed unsafe by the authorities for the amount of spectators.
So with trepidation in 2017 we headed to our first display at RM Condor.
This was also a great success, with Police Scotland estimating spectators at over 7000 people.
We fundraise all year round and we always need extra volunteers on the night.
This year our display will be Saturday 3rd November 2018 (again at RM Condor).

The therapies that I offer are:
Hypnotherapy, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and REIKI can help treat matters of the mind and body which perhaps hold you back from reaching your full potential in any aspects of your life’s journey.
Please visit my website HYPNOTAP for further information
So if you:
Are you looking to change your life?
Are there issues and problems you would like to be rid of?
Anything at all that is holding you back from getting the most out of life?
Well, this could be as simple as changing your thought patterns or your beliefs about yourself because your reality is created by your “beliefs,” usually deep seated beliefs, sometimes ingrained from birth. It is from these beliefs that we form our perceptions about the world and ourselves, and from these perceptions we develop our behaviours and how we deal with life.
So if you want to make the changes in your life so that you can do what you want to do and be all you want can be an aid to help you reach your full potential. These therapies are not magic wands but techniques to help you overcome any outdated thoughts and beliefs to enable you to live the life and achieve the goals you dream of.
I can also offer an alternative to the above in the form of a Reiki treatment. The Reiki system of healing is a safe, gentle, non-intrusive technique to treat physical or emotional problems or simply for relaxation. It is a holistic system for balancing, healing and harmonising all aspects of the body and when the whole body is in balance it can heal itself.
Discover the real you and tap into your full potential now!
