Advice is always on hand from TNT Fireworks on any safety issues and we recommend that you take time to read through our "Please Respect Others" code below before you use your fireworks.

Fireworks are available all year round and are used for weddings, anniversaries, parties as well as the traditional bonfire night and New Year's Eve.

PLEASE RESPECT OTHERS

The following guide is a code for using fireworks carefully, so as not to upset or cause unnecessary distress.

Noisy fireworks can cause distress to:

  • Young children
  • Elderly people
  • Pets
  • Livestock

We strongly advise that you:

  • Fire noisy fireworks only over November 5th Guy Fawkes and New Year's Eve and please still think of others that may be upset by the noise and warn them first.
  • Fire "low noise" fireworks (there is a large selection available) during other periods especially the summer months or if you are having a large professional show, you consider the noise this will create and you think about others.

The following guide gives a short but important code to remember each time you want to fire:

  • Take time to think who would not like your firework display. Are there elderly people close by or families with young children?
    • Have you told your neighbours and those close by when you are planning your display?
    • Is there a farm near you or people with pets?
  • Notify people in plenty of time that you are having a firework party - they may need to move animals.
  • Kick off your display so that it finishes before 11pm - after this time is very unsociable and can cause unnecessary discomfort.
  • Thinking carefully and planning your display with others in mind ensure not only you, but everyone else will enjoy your displays, and you won't spoil your evening by having floods of complaints the following day.
