Scotland leads the way on firework legislation

Scotland leads the way on firework legislation proving that things can change and persistence pays off. This is happening because MPs listened when their constituents contacted them. This can happen in the rest of the UK but your MP needs to hear from you. It’s easy using Just tell them your experiences – if you don’t tell them they won’t know 🙂


Whoo hoooo!! We have reached 1 million signatures on our petition. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SIGNED AND SHARED. The petition will still accept signatures so please continue the good work. The more the better, in this case. I will now apply for an appointment to hand it in at NO 10. Watch this space for photos.

Please report all problem fireworks

WHY? This is important as ministers want facts and figures and they get these from incidents reported to the police, the RSPCA and BHS. Please don’t tell us “there’s no point” or “they won’t do anything”. If you don’t report the issue then as far as the authorities are concerned it didn’t happen.


Please report ALL illegal fireworks to the police

More than 50% of police forces now have an easy way to report illegal firework use online. You can check if your force is one of them here

Other forces need to be contacted by phone on 101 or 999 in an emergency. Insist that your report is logged.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111 or online at

Please report ALL problems regarding animals to the RSPCA  or on 0300 1234 999

and ALL problems regarding horses to BHS via their website  or or their app – Horse i

Fireworks are a little bit of harmless fun?

Jacob Rees-Mogg says “Fireworks are a little bit of harmless fun”…/19687289.they…/. Apparently he has no idea of what distress and trauma they cause. But we do. That’s why we’ve been campaigning for a change in firework law since 2013.

You can help:

1. EMAIL YOUR MP – do this now on Mark it URGENT. Tell them how fireworks affect you and ask them to attend Monday’s debate on your behalf.

RSPCA Reporting Log

STOP PRESS: The RSPCA reporting log has gone live. Please use it to report any problems you have with fireworks/animals.


The government need facts and figures before they take any action. Up to now there have been no official figures because no one is collecting and collating the information. This is an official RSPCA initiative to provide government with the information they need.


Although it may look like a one off survey it can be completed as many times as you need.

We understand that you may want to check it is bona fide before completing so you can find it on the RSPCA website.

From their main page go to the menu and select:

  • Get Involved
    • Campaign
      • Fireworks

Scroll down the page until you see the green box with “share your story”

Click on the “share your fireworks story” button to begin.

You can see the RSPCA privacy notice at the bottom of their page.

Government petitions

We have therefore decided not to write a new government petition this year. There are however, as always, other petitions running and we recommend that you sign them all. We have listed them for you on our website:
