Sparklers at the ready, November is almost upon us which means Bonfire Night celebrations will soon be in full swing across Cornwall. Some may choose to host their own party at home while others may prefer to leave the hard work to the professionals.

If you prefer the latter, Falmouth Fire Station is once again holding its annual fireworks night. The display is being held at Falmouth Cricket Club on Monday 5th November. Gates open at 6pm and the event will start at 7pm. The display will be set to music and will use £8000 worth of fireworks. As well as the all important display there will also be entertainment, stalls, food, fire eaters and more. Contact Falmouth Fire Station for more details.

FIREWORK SAFTEY

To ensure everyone stays safe this Bonfire Night, Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service is reminding everyone to follow the Firework Safety Code:

Only buy fireworks marked BS 7114.

Don't drink alcohol if setting off fireworks.

Keep fireworks in a closed box.

Follow the instructions on each firework.

Light at arm's length, using a taper.

Stand well back.

Never go near a firework that has been lit. Even if it hasn't gone off, it could still explode.

Never put fireworks in your pocket or throw them.

Always supervise children around fireworks.

Light sparklers one at a time and wear gloves.

Never give sparklers to a child under five.

Keep pets indoors.

Meanwhile Devon and Cornwall Police say that in the run up to and on 5 November officers will be out on patrol enforcing regulations about the use and possession of fireworks.

Officers can stop and search anyone they suspect may have banned fireworks and issue fines or fixed penalty notices to people who throw fireworks in the street.

Shopkeepers who sell fireworks to under 18s and anyone who uses or possesses them illegally could find themselves facing a fine of up to £5,000 and/or a prison sentence.
