Remember, remember, the 5th of November…
Bonfire night can be an annual highlight for some of us, but for others it can be the worst night on the calendar.
The noise from fireworks can be distressing for animals and some vulnerable people. Be considerate and respectful of them when planning your bonfire night celebrations.
If you’re planning a display at home, then be safe – stand well back, never return to a lit firework and always wear gloves when handling sparklers.
Let your neighbours know in advance so that they can take measures to protect pets or family members who are affected by the noise.
Have fun, Stay safe
