YOU cannot do things by halves if you want to create a bonfire display to remember - and the team behind Slough Borough Council's annual fireworks spectacular really pushed the boat out this year.

It took a million firecrackers to get the 60ft high bonfire going in Upton Court Park on Saturday.

It needed to be spectacular to top the 20 minute firework display that had been enjoyed by 15,000 people moments before - and nobody was disappointed.

There was plenty to do as well when the display was over as families took advantage of the range of food from around the world that was on sale as well as the massive funfair.

Slough Borough Council's events and commercial officer Lynsey Hellewell said: "It was probably the largest event we have ever had, really fabulous."

Disabled firework lovers were well catered for as well with special access and a viewing area on the tarmac that made sure they did not miss out on any of the spectacle.

Gates opened at 5.30pm to give the crowds plenty of time to get parked and settled and most visitors chose to make an evening of it.

The display has been an annual part of life in Slough for as long as most people can remember but this year's could well go down in the town's history as one of the best.
