Are you heading to Beverley Westwood to watch this year’s bonfire and fireworks display? Humberside Police would like to offer some crime prevention advice and to remind everyone of the road closures and parking for the event.
Driving to the bonfire?
Westwood Road from Albert Terrace will be access only from noon and will be closed completely from 6pm-10pm. The Walkington Road from Westwood Road to Keldgate Road B1230 will be closed from noon to 10pm to allow the organisers to set up the fire and fireworks display.
Anyone who is travelling by car should park in the town centre car parks, which are free after 6pm. These are located on Grayburn Lane, Saturday Market Place, School Lane and George Street. It is only a 10-minute walk to the Westwood from all the town centre car parks.
Parking on the Westwood on Newbald Road is not advised as is it unlit and can pose a danger when walking across the pastures from here.
Please do not use on-street parking surrounding the Westwood as this creates a great hazard to pedestrians.
The Lions will have pedestrian crossing points on the main approaches to the Bonfire, please take notice of their advice and only cross when safe to do so.
Please keep yourself and your property safe.
Bonfire to be lit at 7:15. Fireworks to start at 7:45
The Beverley Lions are asking that you DO NOT BRING YOUR OWN FIREWORKS, including SPARKLERS as these can be dangerous to other members of the public, and the spent sparker wires left on the ground are dangerous to the cattle that graze on the land after you have all gone home.
Remember to keep your home secure and don’t leave valuables on display when going out to celebrate Bonfire Night.
If you park your vehicle to go and watch a firework display, don’t leave anything valuable on show.
Parents and carers are asked to keep children safe and to know where they are and what they are doing. Make this Bonfire Night pass without harm, injury or incident.
