Was certainly was a shock for my poorly mum and the dogs.

Not a party pooper, just a shame it was so close to the houses.

Flipping nightmare. I thought WW3 had started - so did my dog, who had an epileptic fit - despite the medication she is on!!

Absolutly dreading 'silly season' (Halloween till January!)

Oh, I guess I was far enough away so that they were just pretty Unsure.

I'm guessing that since no one has owned to it, it must have been a private party. (I do admit, they were a tad big and loud for just a back garden party).

Honestly, I assumed they were coming from Horniman Gardens.

No such thing as awesome fireworks. Terrible, boring, offensive things. These included.

Nope they were coming from between Church Rise and Westbourne Drive.
Definatly a private thing.

Certainly wasnt well thought out, or enjoyable for us or the dogs. Way too close to the houses.

Looked to me as though they were coming from Crystal Hall on Perry Vale, but could well be wrong.

Church Rise for sure, the sparks and shells were landing in my garden as we watched on over the fence.

..just noticed this - putting my 10cents in - gawd i was certain it was gunfire initially - terrified to go up the road - expected to hear sirens...

the flares were definitely coming from the estate corner south & church.
