THE Viking School has won £300 after its pupils proved they were a cut above in a Guy Fawkes competition.

Pupils from the Skegness school won both the ‘under eights’ and ‘nine to 11 years’ categories in Spilsby Round Table’s competition.

Their creations will now go up in smoke at the Table’s spectacular fireworks display and bonfire at Burgh le Marsh on Saturday, November 5.

But they aren’t the only winners. Pupils from every school that entered the competition stand to gain free entry to the huge display.

This year’s display will begin at 7pm with the lighting of the massive bonfire, followed by the launch of over £5,000 worth of fireworks at 7.30pm.

“On the night there will be kids rides, bouncy castles, hog roasts, barbecues, hot food stands and mulled wine made from a traditional recipe from “Gstaad”,” said a spokesperson for the Round Table.

“All of the proceeds from the Spilsby 787 Round Table event will go to local charities.

“Out charity fundraising officer, Chris Pain, hopes the public will give the charity bonfire night its usual excellent support in order to make it a cracking fund raising event with fun for all the family,” they added.

Entry to the event is £3 for adults and £1 for children.
