Make fireworks one night only

I am well aware that there are many who may take issue about what I am going to say but I am quite prepared to take any backlash as I feel so strongly about it.

I absolutely detest the distress that fireworks can cause. I think that any pet owner will understand exactly where I am coming from.

One night is bad enough but at least then pet owners would know and do everything in their power to protect their pets the best way they can.

Unfortunately it seems to go on night after night causing such misery and terror for domestic and farm animals and, indeed, for some people too.

I am no killjoy and have no wish to stop people having fun but in my opinion it should be permitted on one night only that being November 5, and only at organised displays.
