WEYMOUTH's skyline will be illuminated with two more firework displays this month.

The town council is organising the final two dates for Monday, August 21 and Monday, August 28, which is a bank holiday. 

The displays will start at 9.30pm and can be viewed anywhere across Weymouth seafront. 

Fireworks have been taking place every Monday during the summer holidays and are are provided by Sirotechnics.

Mayor of Weymouth, Cllr Kate Wheller, said: “It’s been great to welcome residents and visitors each Monday to watch the spectacular firework displays.

"I would encourage people to make an evening of it and support the many local venues along the seafront.

“And I will also be out with the charity collectors from Weymouth & Portland Lions Club who are supporting me in raising vital funds for local groups and charities in the town.

"They will be at the displays shaking buckets for anyone who is able to make a donation, or go online and visit their Just Giving page."

The charities being supported by the mayor are MV Freedom, which gives access to the water for people living with disability, and the Evergreen Unit, which provides palliative care at Westhaven Hospital.

The town council is encouraging people to leave their cars at home and walk, cycle, or use public transport when getting to and from the displays.
