A Penny for the Guy


Guy Fawkes got his usual annual singeing on November 5 as thousands of children in the province celebrated the age-old anniversary of a would-be, old time arsonist. As well as many private bonfires and firework parties (enjoyed, by the way, by youngsters and their parents alike), there were many organised celebrations. At the old quarry around the Maitai River the local children had a lot of fun, and the effort of the Richmond Jaycee was an excellent one (we've never seen such a monstrous bonfire). The two pics above show some of the fireworks effects at the quarry and all other pics were taken at Richmond.
