Staff and residents at Reigate Beaumont in Reigate celebrated Bonfire Night with a bang on November 3rd when they gathered around together to watch a fantastic firework display. Reigate 17th Scouts and the Mayor & Mayoress of the Borough of Reigate & Banstead were also in attendance and everyone enjoyed hotdogs and mulled wine together.
