Firefighters are urging families to attend organised community fireworks displays and bonfire nights this weekend.

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service says the best way to have “an enjoyable and safe Bonfire Night” is to attend a well-organised local display.

But firefighters have also appealed for anyone letting off fireworks at home this weekend to make sure they follow the Firework Code.

The Herald has rounded up the best community bonfire and firework displays in the Farnham, Alton, Haslemere, Bordon and Liphook areas here.

Group manager for community safety at HIWFRS, John Amos, said: “We know many people look forward to Bonfire Night and hope everyone who wants to celebrate gets the chance to do so safely.

“It’s always safer to attend a well-organised community event than let off fireworks at home, but if you are marking the occasion at home, please remember that fireworks are explosives.

“Don’t take risks, follow the Firework Code and always read the manufacturer’s instructions.

“Pop-up shops that only sell fireworks for a short period of time might be cheaper but may not meet British safety standards, so please don’t be tempted to cut corners to save money.

“Talk to your children about where they are and what they are doing. If you do see anyone behaving irresponsibly with fireworks, please report it to the police on 101.”
