This week the Highfield Residents Committee organised a Bonfire Night on site. Piles of wood on the construction site were pushed into a burning heap ready for the big event. On Thursday evening residents enjoyed happy hour in the clubrooms, followed by pre bonfire pizzas before being transported to the bonfire site by vans. There is something magical about bonfires, especially on a calm still night with millions of stars shining bright. We had ringside seats around the bonfire to watch the fireworks display. Some families and grandchildren came along to enjoy the evening as well. We even had sparklers…….for young and old to enjoy! A fun night was had by all!
I first came to look at the village with a friend about six years ago. It was in its early development stage. Being a builder, I looked at the plans and was suitable impressed and realised that moving to Highfield Country Estate would be ideal for my wife and myself. The next step was to go home and talk my wife and family into it. Shona finally relented and we put a deposit down thinking it was going to be years before we moved in. About two years later we were living here.— Residents: David & Shona Hollinshead
