Hands holding a lit sparkler on bonfire night

If you are having a bonfire party at home this year, with friends, family and neighbours, follow these five important points.

  1. Only buy fireworks from a reputable source. Not the guy down the pub. Not the car-boot sale. Not the buy-one-get-three-free rip off merchants. They will only sell you disappointment, and the fireworks may not even be safe.
  2. Prepare your display in advance and in the light. Work out all your safety distances and stick to them.
  3. Decide who is going to let the fireworks off. It needs to be a responsible adult who won’t have been drinking, and who wants everyone to be able to go home safely.
  4. Keep pets indoors, with someone who can calm them down if they get worried by your fireworks (or someone else’s)
  5. Ask someone to be the safety monitor. They have the final say on anything.
  6. Yes, we know we said 5 tips. But the last one is to check the other advice here.
