Bonfire fun!


According to CAPT, over 550 children under 16 are taken to A&E in the 4 weeks surrounding bonfire night. These are more likely to be boys than girls, especially aged 12 – 15 years.

CAPT also warn about sparklers – they can reach a temperature of 2,000 degrees Celsius which is 20 times the boiling point of water (

So sparklers are definitely not something to be taken lightly. Make sure you don’t give them to children under 5 years as they are too young to hold them safely. Older children must still be supervised when using sparklers.

Have fun and stay safe!
