Spalding residents urged to be mindful of neighbours and animals with garden fireworks displays




People are being asked to respect their neighbours and pets when letting off fireworks.

With all organised displays cancelled due to the pandemic, many South Holland residents have been enjoying fireworks in their back gardens.

But this can have an impact on people who live nearby with pets. The RSPCA is also running a campaign to change fireworks regulations.

Spalding resident Angela Green, who is currently caring for a rescue bat, is asking people to mindful of others.

She said: “We have had fireworks going off for more than a week in the Bourne Road area but it is not as bad as it has been in the past few years.

“Powerful fireworks are not good for pets and are not suitable to be let off in people’s back gardens. Please be mindful of others.”

South Holland district councillor Angela Newton said: “If you are having one in your garden please alert your neighbours as it gives them a chance to make sure their pets and other animals are safely secure.”

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue were called out to a hedge fire in Kirton on Saturday which had been sparked by a stray firework.

Paul Howes, group manager for Prevention and Protection, said: “It’s so important that you check the packaging to see how much space needs to be given for each type of firework, and only buy the ones that are suitable for your garden.”
