As we are currently having to carry our terrified dog back from the Cock to Barcombe I was wondering who it is that's letting off the fireworks. Anyone know?

Seems to have been going on for over 30 mins now, are we sure this is a display, can anyone actually see any fireworks.

As they go it was a good display (but frankly I've seen so many now they no longer hold any interest) and can be seen and heard for miles north of Lewes. If I had a guess I'd say they were being held at Lower Stonehouse Farm (bearing in mind that the inconsiderate bast*** who owns the place is not unknown for putting on loud events without gaining the appropriate licences).

If you can't afford a Nappy and a pair of Ear Defenders for your little Pooch!
I have to ask myself, should you really be having a Dog?
I think its a bit much expecting everyone to be silent (on a Sat) just for you Zebedee!

I love fireworks, but having owned 2 dogs who were completely traumatised by them, I feel for Zebedee. When a display is expected, you can go out for the evening and take the dog with you, but when you have no idea they're going to happen, there's nothing you can do.
I've no wish to restrict firework displays any more than they are already, but it would make life a lot easier for a lot of people if a couple of weeks notice had to be given to local residents.
And I could have done without hearing rookies going off well after midnight!

It was a sales display by phoenix fireworks. Just like buying a new car. You want to try it before you buy it.

Then it was a display that suited Phoenix and inconvenienced others.
PersonalIy I think fireworks are passÚ and overrated and here, we have far too many of them. There is no doubt they create considerable distress for pets and wildlife and wherever they were let off from last night distressed an awful lot of ground.
I personally have nothing against the owner of Lower Stoneham Farm but he does appear fairly inconsiderate to the neigbours and surrounding territory.

It was a trade show, happens every year, as said before, it's good to see before you buy.

When the disturbance covers such a large geographical area and affects so many people maybe it should be incumbent on the authorities that granted the licence to inform all those who might be inconvenienced. Presumably that's Lewes District Council?

You want people who might be making a bit of noise for half an hour or so to write to everyone who might hear it and ask if it's ok first? Nothing would ever get done! Have you ever walked past the Cuilfail Tunnel of a Friday night when they're cleaning it? The ground shakes several streets away, if people can put up with that then half an hour of fireworks is nothing.
Anyway, there are already reams of legislation and hoops to jump through with regards to making a noise with fireworks, all of which this particular display were well within. Like all the people in the Santon thread saying if you want affordable housing move elsewhere, if you want to own a nervous dog, move to Uckfield.
