Over the last two weeks I have spoken with both the manager of the Norwood Hall Hotel and the contractor who organises most of the fireworks displays at the hotel about the concerns some Garthdee residents have about fireworks displays at the hotel.
Residents have told me that fireworks displays at the hotel are upsetting people with dementia, children and family pets.
I emphasised to the hotel manager and contractor that the displays were causing problems for some residents.
Both the hotel manager and fireworks contractor told me that quieter fireworks are now being used. I was also told that no displays would take place after 10pm.
There are legal restrictions are placed on when fireworks can be used. During most of the year fireworks can only be used between 7am and 11pm. On 5th November fireworks can be used until midnight, and on the nights of Chinese New Year, Diwali and Hogmanay fireworks can be used until 1am. It is the police’s responsibility to enforce these regulations.
I have been told the next firework display at the Norwood Hall Hotel will be at 9.30pm on Friday 6th September. The display will last for five minutes.
I understand that no further fireworks displays are currently planned at Norwood Hall Hotel until Hogmanay. If I do find out about more fireworks displays, I will publish the details on my website.1 Comment
