Fireworks night safety

Firework burst



As a council we have pledged to take local action to encourage everyone to consider the impact of fireworks on animal welfare and vulnerable people in the district. We'll be promoting the use of quieter fireworks and asking you to be considerate if you are having a bonfire.

We also recommend that you do not use sky lanterns or helium balloons to celebrate events.
