Advice: Bonfire night/fireworks

People who want to celebrate Bonfire night are urged to take simple precautions to keep them, their families and communities safe.

We would appeal to parents to remind their children of the dangers of fireworks and to know their whereabouts and what they are doing. Fooling around with fireworks is dangerous and the consequences could be life changing.

We take this type of anti-social behaviour very seriously and will take appropriate action against any persons putting themselves or others at risk.

We would always recommend you attend an organised display, but if you are intending on having a private bonfire/firework party please remind yourself of the Firework Code and safety advice at

Remember your pets! Keep pets safely in doors and turn the volume up on TV’s to distract from firework noise.
