There have been fireworks going off, from (probably) a couple of houses across the road since 5.30 this evening :-|

It's Remembrance day - what do they think they're doing - reminding those suffering from PTSD about their lives in service?

Someone too thoughtless to care no doubt

We have had loads of fireworks this evening as well, which is most odd.

We have heard fireworks locally all week, off and on, so annoying and scary for pets as well as veterans. I don't think fireworks should be sold to joe public these days.

I went shopping last Thursday and Sainsbury was still selling fireworks

Maybe hoping that folks would still buy

We do get folks letting fireworks off at midnight new year eve so guess they must buy and store

We've had them all week as well - but not as close.
I believe they can be sold up until 10th November.

We had 2 different lots going off in the course of the evening. Judging by the direction, probably from a couple of the larger houses who had quite noisy displays last weekend.

On the other hand, our electricity went off within a couple of minutes of the last batch. The bangs could have been something ‘blowing up’!
