Have fun and keep safe on Fireworks Night
25/10/2011 15:00 PM
With the nights drawing in and the days getting shorter, it is traditional at this time of year to enjoy fireworks displays and bonfires.
In Tower Hamlets in recent years many thousands of residents have enjoyed free fireworks displays in Victoria Park. This year, the Council have decided instead to host three separate displays in parks across the borough, to provide displays closer to people's homes and to avoid the overcrowding from holding one big event. Displays will be held in Weavers Fields, Bartlett Park and Millwall Park. Admission is free and the displays will start at 7.30pm on Saturday 5th November.

At this time of year it is particularly important to remember that fireworks and bonfires can be a safety hazard as well as entertainment. Residents are reminded that no bonfires are permitted at any time on EastendHomes land. We would strongly advise you to attend the Council's free events rather than organising fireworks yourselves - however the London Fire Brigade offers advice on how to use fireworks safely.
Residents can play their part in keeping fire risks to a minimum by having any bulky items of rubbish collected by the Council's Streetline service - call 0207 364 5004 to arrange a collection. Additionally, EastendHomes will be putting on additional patrols of our estates to clear away any bulk rubbish or flammable materials which could pose a fire risk to our homes and estates. Every evening from Monday 31st October to after Bonfire Night, EastendHomes operatives will be touring our estates looking for potential fire hazards, which will be removed. EastendHomes hopes to help our residents to have a safe and enjoyable time during this period.
