I can understand how it might not be the same without the noise of fireworks. However I feel there can be a compromise and that is to return to the noise level of years ago which was a lot quieter. I certainly think it is doable and there is no need to have fireworks that sound like bombs going off and can be heard in the next county!

I also feel that they should be limited to the original main use in England - Guy Fawkes Night. Having them for every celebration is ridiculous and is certainly not good for the environment and all the poor animals and birds that suffer.

True, if fireworks were strictly limited to once a year on traditional events (Guy Fawkes Night for you, Bastille Day for us), it would be slightly more tolerable. But in France, as is the case in the UK too, in addition to the official July 14th fireworks which take place in every French city/town, more and more people have quite recently started to buy individual ones to celebrate the New Year, for example, plus various other occasions. Too much is too much!!!
