Holding your own bonfire or firework display?

Unless it is an organised community bonfire,  it is much better to manage without a bonfire. But if you insist, please make sure sure you follow this safety advice:

  • Site the bonfire well away from houses, garages, sheds, fences, overhead cables, trees and shrubs AND ALWAYS AWAY FROM FIREWORKS

  • Build the stack so that it is stable and will not collapse outwards or to one side

  • NEVER use flammable liquids - paraffin or petrol - to light the fire

  • Don't burn foam-filled furniture, aerosols, tins of paint and bottles

  • Keep everyone away from the fire - especially children, who must be supervised all the time

  • For an emergency keep buckets of water or the garden hose or a fire extinguisher ready

  • Pour water on the embers before leaving

  • Always follow the firefwork code - fire work code and firework safety advice 

  • Don't take sparklers to public displays, it will be too crowded to use them safely - Sparkler safety advice
