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).

Stevie has been working with the Angus Active Schools team since 2010. Sport has always been a huge part of his life and he enjoys developing volunteers and helping provide opportunities for young people to get involved and progress in a wide variety of sports and physical activity. In his spare time he enjoys… all things sport!
We are a small, registered Charity, SCO34175. Our Objectives are to provide an inclusive and supportive environment for families including those youngsters who have a disability, special need or culture needs. We provide a meeting place, usually once a month, so people can get together for the purpose of mutual support and encouragement in their fostering tasks and to organising activities and social events. We offer all youngsters new opportunities and good experience through our activities and day trips. We do this through fundraising and the children help to do this. We try to give the most Vulnerable Children in our area New, Good Experiences. The children we support have experienced many different disadvantages, Neglect which has resulted in the children not growing or reaching their milestones as their peers have. Lack of opportunities including hobbies and school trips due to birth parents poverty resulting in poor self-esteem and feelings of exclusion, Lack of social skills resulting in poor ability to mix with social groups, mix in general public and have appropriate behaviours. Lack of encouragement and praise which would limit their ability to try new activities.
Through trying new experiences and activities the children will learn new physical and social skills. They will gain the development of motor skills and stimulation of mental ability. This is to be done in a controlled environment that they feel safe in, enhancing their self-esteem and their will to go on and try more new experiences. In addition to this it will stimulate their imagination and creative ability as they will experience, hear, see and feel things they haven’t before. The children bond with their carers during our activities, also allowing them to socialise with other children in the same situation.
Active Schools provides a number of exciting volunteer opportunities to those interested in sport or physical activity. Through volunteering with Active Schools you can help out your local school and community as well as gain valuable experience of coaching and working with children and young people.
