About Us

The Ampthill and District Lions decided that they were no longer able to organise the yearly Fireworks Display, so a small committee was formed in July 2011 to ensure the continuity of this popular Event. A few names have come and gone over the years, but the magic 8 below will be sure to deliver. 

We are a non-profit organisation, run entirely by volunteers.  However any spare monies raised will be put back into the local community, to continue organising local events.
