The weather is turning a bit chilly which can only mean one thing, bring out the woolly hats and scarfs, cook up some soup and check out where the local firework displays are being held.
This Friday in Truro there are two great firework displays to choose from.
Truro City Council puts on its annual bonfire and fireworks display at Tremovah Playing Fields from 5pm to 7pm. Stephens Scown sponsor and money raised will go to the fabulous Cornwall Air Ambulance. Admission is: adults £3, children over 4, £1 and under-4s free.
St Austell Brewery fireworks display is also on Friday at 5pm at the Heron Inn, Malpas. Fireworks, from a barge, start at 6.30 with a Hog Road and a Korev Airstream outside bar. Park at Boscawen Park and follow the directions from the marshalls. Entry is free, but they’ll be an opportunity to donate to charity.
A firework display isn’t complete without a warming mug of soup and some nice cosy hats and wraps. Here are some favourites that I found in Truro independents.
This soup used to be a warming family favourite and to be honest, I’d forgotten about it until I found an old cookery book which my son’s school had produced as a fund-raiser. This recipe called ‘Sam’s Roasted Pumpkin and Bacon Soup’ is now firmly back on the menu at our house! Here’s my take on a ‘tasty’ video.
There are plenty of organised firework displays in Cornwall and you can find all the details on the West Briton site here.
