Trading standards Have a safe and considerate fireworks night

We are determined to help your Bonfire Night celebration go with a bang – for all the right reasons.

In the lead up to the big day on 5 November, we have vowed to promote the safe and considerate use of fireworks by:

  • Supporting public firework displays within Shropshire to be appropriately advertised in advance of events, to allow residents time to take precautions to protect vulnerable people and animals
  • Promoting public awareness about the impact of fireworks on vulnerable people and animal welfare, including the precautions that can be taken to mitigate risks
  • Encouraging public firework event organisers to consider the use of silent displays with music to keep young children safe and to protect animals
  • Encouraging local suppliers of fireworks to stock ‘quiet’ fireworks for public displays and private use
