Latest news from WCARA

1. Fireworks are not permitted on the road. There is £5000 fine for anyone caught setting off fireworks on the road. Therefore we would discourage setting off fireworks in front gardens/parking.
2. Children should never play with fireworks. Things like firecrackers, rockets, and sparklers are just too dangerous. If you give kids sparklers, make sure they keep them outside and away from the face, clothing, and hair.
3. Steer clear of others set off fireworks. They can backfire or shoot off in the wrong direction.
4. Never throw or point fireworks at someone, even as a joke.
5. Don't hold fireworks in your hand or have any part of your body over them while lighting. Wear eye protection, and don't carry fireworks in your pocket — the friction could set them off.
6. Point fireworks away from homes, and keep away from brush and leaves and flammable substances.
7. Don't allow kids to pick up pieces of fireworks after an event. Some may still be ignited and can explode at any time.
Be respectful of your neighbours and finish at a reasonable time not till early hours in the morning.
8. If an Injury Happens, immediately go to a doctor or hospital.

Fireworks are meant to be enjoyed, but you'll enjoy them much more knowing your family is safe. We wish everyone a Very Happy Diwali.
