Bonfire night fireworks

Incredibly loud fireworks in Heptonstall possibly Beckets Close. Our dog is scared stupid. It's about time they were stopped.

Sorry to hear that your pooch was distressed, Steve;  I don't own a pet any longer but empathise.  

We had the very loud 'boomers' (bombs) here on Brearley little park at midnight!  In the park a public place.  Fire/Police/Ambulance no doubt exhausted - elsewhere.  

I love fireworks but a ban on individual use is long overdue.  Organised events: safer, communal, litter picked up afterward etc., everyone comes together has food, perhaps some music and enjoys!  Family events. Calderdale Wake Up!

Must admit I thought it was all fairly low key this year -particulalry since we didn't have a village event.  I was just a field away and didn't notice anything that loud. Our old dog hated them but so long as it was just a couple of times a year that's seemed ok - the problem is if they over-extend the allowed periods.
