Bristol Bonfire Night Patrol & A Prayer for November


PEACEMAKERS City Safety Patrollers will be out and about on the streets of Bristol on a night known as Guy Fawkes Night or BonFire Night in Bristol, around the Royatte Hill, Gordon Road and Whitehall areas.

The Rose Green & Bristol West Indian Phoenix Cricket Club will be running a Family Fireworks Display  Extravaganza  on their grounds, staring at 4pm through to 10pm.





Over the years there has been negligent fireworks crimes on Bonfire night where young people loiter the streets throwing fire works at each other or at passing cars. However,  in recent years there has been fewer reports of these types of activities, with less unorganised fireworks gatherings around the city.

Rev Palmer says she hopes the Patrols prayer presence, and bright High-Viz Jackets, will help to keep the peace, and hopefully ward off  ruckus pranksters.

The Patrollers will gather for prayer across from the Queen’s Head Pub at the top of Royatte Hill at 7pm, before moving along Royatte Hill towards the Fishponds Trading Estates, Gordon Road, and into Whitehall. For more information please Email:

A Prayer for November

God our light

Shining beams of love,

Fill hearts and minds.

Illumine  homes and streets

Alleyways and lanes,

And brighten the paths we thread.

Protect the weak and innocent

With love and light,

And for Goodness sake

Let all be safe. Amen.

A Prayer for November ~ written by Reverend Dr Dawnecia Palmer, Chief Commissioner PEACEMAKERS Patrol
