Fireworks safety

It’s the night to whistle up a few whizz-bangs and light up the sky! Head in store to discover our range of fireworks to help your night go with a bang, but don’t forget to follow the Firework Code:

1  Keep fireworks in a closed box, well out of the reach of children.

2  Follow the instructions on each firework carefully.

3  Light fireworks at arm’s length, using a taper.

4  After lighting, immediately move back a safe distance.

5  Never go back to a lit firework, even if it hasn’t gone off.

6  Never throw fireworks or put them in your pocket.

7  Always supervise children around fireworks.


Follow the Firework Code to make sure you have a safe bonfire night. For more information, pick up the Safe Use of Fireworks leaflet with your purchase, and visit direct.gov.uk/fireworks

Tips for pet owners


As we prepare for the excitement of Bonfire Night, Britons are being urged to spare a thought for our pets. 5 November is the most stressful night of the year for animals and can make dogs and cats run away and get lost.

DogLost UK, which keeps a database of lost dogs, receives about 250 calls a week, but this doubles in early November. The organisation also sees a dramatic rise in the number of dogs involved in road accidents after they become disorientated. Only a third of dogs arriving at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home in London are microchipped, and virtually none have a collar and tag, making it almost impossible to trace their owners.
