I wrote a letter to the editor two years ago, which was published, suggesting that Exmouth council and/or some of the local hotels should fund a firework display on New Year's Eve, to complement the wonderful atmosphere that abounds in the town, particularly among the younger element.

I would like to think that maybe my letter contributed in some small way to the event that took place this New Year.

We live in both Gloucestershire and Exmouth, but always make sure we are in the town for New Year.

May I compliment the fantastic success of the firework display and the fairground, both of which brought a much-increased number of 'party people' on to the seafront at midnight.

I think it was a brilliant idea to hold the display on a boat in the bay, where everyone got a good view. It was interesting to look up at the hotel windows during the display, to see the many happy faces that quite obviously enjoyed the spectacle.

Just a big thank you for all the hard work that a lot of people must have put in to the organisation of the event. And a big thank you for whoever paid for it.
