This reminiscence from Amy Keating, aged 12, was collected via Discover Milton Keynes during the City of Firsts exhibition when people were invited to tell us their ‘firsts’:
When me and my sister, Elizabeth went to a fire work display in Wolverton, I went to the gates and watched them. I remember asking my mom when the fire (bonfire) would go out. My mom said “it would go out by itself”. So me as a 7-year-old freaked out and ran, my mom had to run after me. I was crying then it started raining and I said “will it go out now” and my mom replied “yes”.
