Sadly no Firework Display in East Boldre this year
The popular Firework Display at East Boldre School Fields (EBSF) will not be taking place in 2019. Parking has increasingly become a problem for the event and with the introduction of 'dragons teeth' along the road by Foresty England earlier this year, the committee feel visitor safety has to be the priority. The committee has been exploring several possible alternatives for parking with no success, making the only option this year to cancel.
The firework night has been steadily increasing its visitors, raising over £6,000 the last two years and has simply become a victim of it's own success! However the small volunteer-led committee will continue with the running of the site and other fundraising events.

Remember the safety code if planning fireworks at home!
If you are planning a firework display at home, remember the RoSPA Firework Safety Code:
Plan your firework display to make it safe and enjoyable
Keep fireworks in a closed box and use them one at a time
Read and follow the instructions on each firework using a torch if necessary
Light the firework at arm's length with a taper and stand well back
Keep naked flames, including cigarettes, away from fireworks
Never return to a firework once it has been lit
Don't put fireworks in pockets and never throw them
Direct any rocket fireworks well away from spectators
Never use paraffin or petrol on a bonfire
Make sure that the fire is out and surroundings are made safe before leaving
Young people should watch and enjoy fireworks at a safe distance and follow the safety rules for using sparklers. Only adults should deal with firework displays and the lighting of fireworks. They should also take care of the safe disposal of fireworks once they have been used.
With some firework displays overlapping with Halloween this year, be especially careful with - or avoid - the combination of fancy dress and sparklers or bonfires. For more information on how to keep safe, visit www.saferfireworks.com.
