Sadly, due to COVID-19 restrictions, there won’t be any organised displays in Medway this year. If you’re planning on celebrating bonfire night at home, please remember the following:
- The rule of 6
- Follow the firework code and fire safety guidance
- Be considerate of wildlife and our furry friends as they can become stressed and frightened – find out more top tips from the RSPCA
- Bonfires can kill wild animals such as hedgehogs, if you are going to have a bonfire in your garden, try and build it as close as possible to the time of lighting it
- Dispose of your fireworks and sparklers properly – soak them in water before putting in your general waste.
