The Ladder Crew would like to invite you to BUILD A GUY!!

In finest Guy Fawkes tradition, come and take part in our Grand Parade and display on Saturday 4th November (10:00am - 4:00pm).  If you are a school, community or social group, children's club, nursery, business or team (you name it, we want you!!) then get involved.  Each Guy will then have the opportunity to show off its wares at the display where the people of Hitchin will be invited to donate 'a penny for the Guy'.  All monies raised will be kept by the designers for their own charity or cause.

The Guy that raises the most money by the will take pride of place on top of this years 'Hitchin Fireworks Fire'.  How exciting!!

Come down, get involved, raise some money for your charity or cause and support our town!
