The Newport Pagnell fireworks display delighted children and families for the first time since 1994 thanks to a generous donation by Specsavers Milton Keynes.

The opticians and audiologists agreed to become the main sponsor of the event, which made its long-awaited return at Riverside Meadow, Newport Pagnell on Friday 3 November.

Fun for all

Visitors to the show – which was free to enter – were treated to a night of entertainment featuring a funfair and food stalls, all capped off with a spectacular 14-minute fireworks display.

Specsavers Milton Keynes further supported the event by providing 200 children with Specsavers hi-vis jackets on entry.

Mark Lombardo, organiser of the Newport Pagnell Fireworks, said: ‘I have been able to put on the event after receiving a large financial contribution from Specsavers Milton Keynes, and I am extremely grateful to them.

Community support

Callum Biggs, hearing director at Specsavers Milton Keynes, said: ‘When we heard that Mark was looking for support to bring back the Newport Pagnell fireworks, we were more than happy to pitch in.

‘We’re delighted to help bring back the event after such a long absence and hope we can bring some cheer to the local community.’
