Arnold, our resident safety expert, would like to remind everyone of the Firework code.
Always keep fireworks in a closed box or tin.
Follow the instructions on each firework.
Stand well back.
Light fireworks at arm’s length, using a taper.
Never put fireworks in your pocket.
Never throw fireworks.
Never go back to a firework that has been lit – even if it hasn’t gone off, it could still explode.
The best thing to do, Arnold says, is to go to an organised display, where all the work is done for you, and you can enjoy the fireworks in safety!
