      “Anyone planning their own garden bonfire is urged to be considerate towards neighbours and pets when setting off fireworks.


      It is safer, better for the environment and often less expensive to attend organised public firework displays.


      It is now ILLEGAL for the general public to set fireworks off before 6pm and after 11pm in the evening (this extends to midnight on 5th November and 1am on New Year’s Eve, Chinese New Year and Diwali).


      If you are unable to attend an organised display, we would ask you to consider the impact of fireworks on people and animals. It is often children rather than adults who are injured by fireworks. The noise and lights that fireworks emit can also be overwhelming for people with a sensory impairment and those with neurological differences such as autism. Animals can also find fireworks particularly distressing.”

        I think it worked well – having Guy Fawkes fall on a Saturday – we only had two nights really, whereas say it was a Thursday, you get the night itself, then parties on the Friday, and parties on the Saturday, maybe even the Sunday!


        Less scraping dogs off the ceiling !
