Plea to stay safe on Guy Fawkes Night

REMEMBER, remember, your firework safety this November.

REMEMBER, remember, your firework safety this November.

Businessman Paul Sura, who helped save the organised display taking place in Tudor Grange Park, has urged families to stay safe.

“People should really only attend official, organised fireworks displays but, if they are putting on their own, then a few simple rules ensure everyone has a good time without anyone getting hurt,” he said.

The pyro-technician, who owns Paul’s Discount Fireworks, said residents should stick to the following guidelines.

l Only one person should be in charge of fireworks.

l Read instructions in daylight, and don’t drink any alcohol until all the fireworks have been discharged.

l Make your preparations in advance, and in daylight.

The Solihull Round Table event, which welcomes several new sponsors this year, will be going ahead on November 7. For the first time ever, the display is free, and the gates will open at 5.30pm. Proceeds will go to the Round Table Children’s Wish Appeal.
