For the last two or three ‘clap for carers’ on Thursday evenings some people have taken to setting off fireworks, including some with very powerful explosions. These are causing upset and distress to many people; animals are being seriously frightened and young children are being woken up. This has made some people say that they will no longer take part in the clapping as the fireworks are causing too much upset.
If you are responsible for these fireworks PLEASE STOP DOING THIS and show your appreciation in the same way as others by just clapping your hands.
If somebody you know is responsible for these fireworks maybe you would consider having a quiet word in their ear and let them know how much upset they are causing?
