As well as the proms fireworks there were two other displays. One at Clay Hill and the other at Barcombe Village Hall. Anyone know anything about them?

Yes I do
You have to light the blue touch paper and retire immediately to a safe distance (say Brighton) and then they go off with lots of bangs and sparks all over the place which puts of the fear of God into every dog in the neighbourhood.
Most of them bark for at least three hours until the owners have shot them with a tranquilliser dart.

Clayhill was for a wedding reception too - we had a good view of the Proms display in the distance as well

Do you know who held the wedding at Barcombe Village Hall? I'd like to send them the bill for cleaning the rug that my terrified dog messed herself on.

Shouldn't you send the bill to Pedigree Chum? Honestly! Some things that people do on the other side of your twitching curtains might occasionally inconvenience you.
Should I send you a bill for harassment when your dog sniffs at my bits and pieces? You, and your dog, should grow a pair.

No curtains and the dog doesn't do that. Unscheduled foreword displays are antisocial and can cause a fair bit of distress as did the one at Barcombe Village Hall, to all three nearby residents. As for growing balls, the dog's a bitch... and you are an idiot.

How about you pay for my alarm every time I walk past a house and your dog barks at me.

You don't get metaphor do you? (You took three literally). You are probably right that I am an idiot though- I will accept that if you agree that you are a misanthrope. Deal?

Huh, you lot think that anyone putting on a full-on professional firework show next to people's houses at any time without giving any notice is acceptable? Get real. Deelite is right.

Are you confirming that Commercial Square have booked Barcombe Village Hall for Saturday 1st August 2015, and that 'this time' the hall committee knows that you intend to hold a fireworks display on the land next to the hall (fireworks are not permitted in the hall's grounds, as I'm sure you are aware)?

No not confirming that at all ,

Resident . If you know the rules so well you will know who booked the hall and is responsible , using my local knowledge I think csbs may have been too busy last sat night to be bothering you

I don't often cross swords with you, but I have to say I have been kept awake far more by dogs (especially recenty) than by fireworks ever. Night after night of two hour bursts of barking and then dragging myself into work in the morning- I have no sympathy for the animals. If it isn't dogs it's cats screwing on the roof. Fire works last no longer than 4 minutes, dogs go on and on, their owners must be deaf.

30 minutes min. Terrify wildlife for miles around. Dog meek as anything, doesn't bark and not interested in your nuts). You should remember, two wrongs don't make a right.
All I am asking for us some notice so I can tranquilise the dog. Is that too much to expect from someone holding a full on fireworks display 300m from your house?

Deelite 2, could I suggest that you get guide dog next time. Advertising for last Staurdays PITP has been visible for some considerable time around the town.

I'm thinking of letting off a couple of fireworks and maybe using a sparkler or two on the 5/11 this year if that's ok with everyone?

It was 4 minutes, I know, not half an hour-two wrongs do not make a right, this is not happening all the time in Barcombe, except around the 15th November.

It was much longer than four minutes and scared the living daylights out of all the animals nearby. The village hall does not allow fireworks on its land for good reason. The organisers knew this, arranged for the fireworks to be located on the adjoining land and deliberately withheld the information from the hall staff. They behaved in a dishonourable manner.

They had permission to use land next to the hall and the hall owners knew that, nothing was with held. I find it sad that a young local mans wedding has been called into dispute over such a trivial thing. Bless the happy couple, it was alovely, country, local wedding and I am very happy for the newly weds.

Bastian. What makes you think the hall administrators knew about the fireworks? My information is different and that they had the wool pulled over their eyes.
