Stay Safe This Bonfire Night

Nottinghamshire residents planning a home firework display this weekend (w/c 31 October) are being reminded to buy fireworks appropriate for their size of garden to reduce the risk of injury or damage to property.

The County Council’s Trading Standards team are encouraging residents to buy ‘Category 2’ fireworks designed for gardens rather than Category 3 fireworks which require a minimum distance of 25 metres between the fireworks and spectators.

People are also being advised to follow the instructions carefully for storing and using the fireworks correctly.

The Trading Standards team is visiting licensed retailers of fireworks across the county to ensure they are meeting the requirements of the Explosives Regulations (2014) relating to the storage and sale of fireworks.  Officers will be checking that fireworks are being stored safely and away from combustible materials and other potential sources of ignition, and ensuring traders understand the current age restrictions applied to the sale of fireworks and sparklers.  The Council is also providing dedicated advice and support to national warehouse retailer JTF Mega Discount Warehouse, which sells a wide range of fireworks to businesses and public and is based in Tuxford with two outlets in Mansfield Woodhouse and Hucknall.

Residents who have concerns on particular products or to receive consumer advice should contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 03454 04 05 06.
