MORE than a thousand people are expected to show their support for Gorsthills Primary School at a community fireworks display.
Following the success of the emotional Circle of Hope demonstration in July, campaigners are expecting another big turnout at the school.
They were also hoping to have actress Terri Dwyer on hand to start the display but, due to work commitments, the former Holly-oaks star is unable to attend.
Terri, who starred in reality TV show The Games in 2003, said: 'It would be a great shame if Cheshire County Council closed Gorsthills. This event proves it is a community-led school.'
Parent-governor Ian Finlay said: 'We want past, present and future pupils there as well as the local community, borough councillors and anyone else who wants to show their support.
'The atmosphere will be awesome and we'll show just exactly why Gorsthills is a community
school and what it means to everyone.'
School governor Gill Birch said: 'We intend to have a wonderful family evening.'
On the night there will also be a barbecue, an adult bar, tea and coffee, a sweet stall and a tombola.
Funds from the evening will be split between the school and the Sam Fynn Appeal, which raises cash to help children battling a brain tumour in memory of the former Gorsthills pupil, who died in 2004 aged six.
The bonfire display takes place on Friday, November 3, with the gates opening at 6.30pm.
The display is expected to start at about 7.45pm and will last for 25 minutes.
If you want to attend the display and show your support for Gorsthills, visit www.gorsthillsactiongroup.co.uk. nThe six-week period for ob-
jection over the proposed closure of Gorsthills ends tomorrow (Thursday), with the matter certain to be referred to the independent school organisation committee.
If it fails to reach a unanimous decision, the school's fate will then rest with an independent Government adjudicator.
