Here’s what you had to say:
- “Fantastic, the finale was awesome, it lit up the whole sky. Good job Medway Council!”
John in Gillingham (caller to the show)
- “It was fun at the great lines on Saturday but we did get rained on in the end.”
Robin in Gillingham (@robinjuste on Twitter)
- “The kids absolutely loved it, great atmosphere, what a fantastic ending too!”
