    Hi everybody,

    Would like to introduce myself, names Ashley, 24 years young and have been an absolute pyro nut since birth I think... =D.
    Got the bug from my father many years ago and it will no doubt be with me until the day I depart. I now do the family displays and hope to be spending copious amounts on what I like best....fireworks it is then haha. Was looking for older stuff online when I stumbled upon galactic via UKFR. Hope to be visiting them myself within the next few weeks, struggling to find decent stuff around Manchester.. Anyway, that's a brief rundown on myself so now I'll go search the forum for pretty pictures and such to amuse my mind =).

    Welcome to the mad-house!

    Someone from Galactic will probably give you the full tour soon but just so you're aware, a lot of the older stuff often comes up in the auctions.
    These are normally first Monday of the month but will be every Monday next month (Oct, for travellers from the future).

    Another pyrobuddy from the North West;good lad! I'm just up the road from you in Accrington Lancashire! Maybe we NW Englanders should hook up along with Stalybridge John200000 and the two other manchester lads BBJB DJSparky and the other kid from Blackpool HarryB and Pyroman and have a North West minimeet and light some stuff together? Anyway it's good to have another North West face on board, enjoy it:) PS If you are free this saturday why not come to our firework display competition at Dinnington Rugby Club near Maltby Rotherham? It's gonna be a brilliant saturday night with 6 fantastic team firework displays and some multiple firework experiments! Don't forget our regular monthly quizzes/auctions and the weekly ones to bommy night this October, you will get some brilliant bargains in pyro and maybe a super pyro prize if you win the quiz.

    And there are some good meets around the year as well so you're not wanting for anything either.

    You will NOT find a better place on the web for your pyro;stuff the rest Galactic IS the best;););)

    Unfortunately I'm off to Blackpool for my friends birthday on Saturday, is Stalybridge John from Staylybridge? My hometown is Dukinfield literally minutes away.

    Yes John200000 is from Stalybridge. He's a nice pyrochappie;we've been up to Nigel's for bargains many a time me and him in his little Fiesta van-you'll love going up to Nigel's, what more could you ask for? There's drinks and biscuits on offer and a classic firework museum in his office not forgetting the affectionate Archie Nigel's grey staffie (and sometimes his little sister Annie is there), I always look at the classic fireworks and marvel in what was. ;)

    I live in Accrington Lancashire. I usually go by train to Manchester thru Blackburn then jump on another to Stalybridge and he picks me up and we go over the Peak District tops past Tankersley to the M1 and drop onto the M18 and take the junction for Rotherham and go eastwards to Maltby and go up Dunstan Road to Nigel's house and office. :)
