This evening we supported the annual (and belated due to half term times on the islands) Bonfire and Fireworks night on St Agnes. It provides the perfect opportunity to remove potential rat-harbouring material on a large community bonfire thanks to Fran Hicks. 

This evening we supported the annual (and belated due to half term times on the islands) Bonfire and Fireworks night on St Agnes. It provides the perfect opportunity to remove potential rat- harbouring material on a large community bonfire thanks to Fran Hicks. 

It is nearly a year since the last report of rat sign, so we are still ensuring we do all we can to keep the islands rat-free.

The project supported the event, so Project Manager and IOSWT volunteers headed over to celebrate the success of the project so far with the community and share the fun of the fireworks and the sparklers.
