Fireworks available in store at Boswells

 

We here at Boswells HQ love a fireworks display, whether that's the big Bonfire Night shebang at South Parks in town or a friendly neighbourhood or back yard display on New Year's Eve. So even with the short days and the need for gloves & scarves when watching, we all have wonders to look forward to.

We sell fireworks of all shapes and sizes from 19th October to November 5th 2017 on our Ground Floor. A few rules apply. These are age restricted products sold only to those 18 and over, this includes those collecting internet orders. We can only supply these for Click & Collect and not delivery on our website.

We sell Category 2 & 3 fireworks and sparklers. Here's a guide to what the various categories mean.

Category 1 also known as Indoor Fireworks are as it sounds suitable for use indoors and normally do not involve any projectile display.

Category 2 also known as Garden Fireworks require a 5 metre safe distance from the firework to those watching any display according to British Standards. The Eu safe distance for this level is 8 metres which you may also see on the firework's instructions.

Category 3 also known as Display Fireworks require a 25 metre safe distance from the firework to those watching any display according to British Standards. The EU safe distance for this level varies from 15 to 25 metres which you may also see on the firework's instructions. These are the largest fireworks available to the general public. Category 4 fireworks are for professional firework display companies only.

Here's just a small sample of what sort of items we will have on offer in store. See the full range here.

 

 

Firework Safety Code

  • Only buy fireworks marked with the British Standard Kitemark BS7114.
  • Don't drink alcohol if setting off fireworks.
  • Keep fireworks in a closed box, and always follow the instructions carefully when using them.
  • Light them at arms length using a taper and stand well back.
  • Never go back to them once they are lit. Even if a firework hasn't gone off, it could still explode.
  • Never throw fireworks and never put them in your pocket.
  • Respect your neighbours – don’t let off fireworks late at night and remember there are laws to follow. 
  • Take care with sparklers – never give them to children under five. Even when they have gone out they are still hot so put sparklers in a bucket of water after use. 
  • Keep your pets indoors throughout the evening.

Bonfire Safety

  • Build your bonfire well clear of buildings, garden sheds, fences and hedges. 
  • Never use flammable liquids to start a bonfire and never burn dangerous items such as aerosol cans, paint tins, foam furniture or batteries. 
  • Don’t leave bonfires unattended. An adult should supervise it until it has burnt out. If it has to be left, damp it down with plenty of water. 
  • Always keep a bucket of water or a hosepipe nearby in case of fire.
