  1. Oh yippee. A summer of driving off in the opposite direction on Wednesday evenings with our two terrified dogs. And the usual upsetting (to some of us at least) of terrified pets. Are the toilets on Viking Bay & near the bandstand still in the same disgusting state? It would be great if money could be spent on them instead. A bit more worthwhile than 15 minutes of whizzes & deafening bangs,

  2. Fireworks , costly and a waste of money, when there are so many things the money should be spent on, and let us how they terrify animals.

  3. Fireworks are so old fashion spend the money on accommodation for immigrants instead so when they arrive from war and persecution they have a nice place to stay

  4. Come on people smile.
    It’s a bit of fun and in this area God knows it needs it.
    Just a question who funds this momentous occasion.
    It will also help our local businesses for some income on those nights.
    I must say that I agree with the comment regarding the public toilets also the lift.
    Obviously the council committees do not get out enough. Deaf dumb and blind comes to mind.
