Fireworks notifications


Many residents enjoy fireworks displays, but fireworks can nonetheless cause distress to pets, horses, and some people.

The Parish Council has no powers to ban fireworks displays - but does encourage venues and residents to notify others before displays take place.  This allows people to make arrangements such as keeping pets indoors, or taking necessary medication.

If you are planning a fireworks display - we would be very grateful if you would notify us at fireworks@escrick.org stating the date/time/venue for the planned display.  Ideally please let us know about 7 - 14 days before the event.

If you would like to be notified of fireworks displays, please join our mailing list, and after receiving the acknowledgement email please select the option for fireworks notifications.  If you are already on our mailing list, select the link at the bottom of alert emails to update your preferences.

For displays at residential properties we will only communicate the vicinity, not the precise address to mitigate concerns about gatecrashers.

We will share notifications that we receive - but cannot guarantee that we will be notified of all events. No liability is accepted for failure to notify residents of an event.

There is more detail regarding the law around fireworks on the Government website: https://www.gov.uk/fireworks-the-law and police website: https://www.askthe.police.uk/c...
