On the first day1st June the symbolic Fireworks Display on the Millennium Green, get there for 9.15pm on the Friday night. The bells will start with a special ringing  the eight bells that were here when the Princess visited Whitchurch.

The mayor has been invited to start the firework display which will be divided into six displays one of each ten years. Mostly diamond silver except if a child has been born a single blue or pink rocket will appear. Then a short period of darkness and then a special pealing of the church bells this time using the ten bells we have now.
