Fireworks are fun for wise guys who remember, remember on the fifth of November (and at any other time) to follow simple safety guidelines when holding a bonfire beano in their garden:-


  • Make sure they're well away from fences, garden sheds and houses and are not hiding any hedgehogs!
  • Never light them with flammable liquids such as petrol or paraffin.
  • Ensure fully extinguished before going back indoors.


  • Keep in a sealed box or tin and use them one at a time, replacing the lid immediately.
  • NEVER put fireworks in your pocket.
  • NEVER use a naked flame to light fireworks - light them at arms length using a taper or firework lighter.
  • Stand well back and never return to a firework after it has been lit - it could explode.
  • Ensure children using sparklers are supervised at all times.  Do not tough sparklers when they go out - they will still burn you and dispose of them in a bucket of cold water.

And don't forget:

  • Keep pets indoors.
  • Keep a bucket of water and a garden hose handy.
