Keep your community safe this Bonfire season
Help Peabody keep your neighbourhood safe this week.
Bonfire night is one of the highlights of the year and firework displays are of course great fun for all the family.
Follow this advice to keep your neighbourhood safe this week:
- Please don't let off fireworks around estates as it can be classed as antisocial behaviour if it happens regularly and our Community Safety Team or your Neighbourhood Manager will have to take action.
- If you're concerned about fireworks being let off in the street, ring the police on 101 for non-emergency calls, and 999 for an emergency.
- See an organised display instead - here's a list of London fireworks displays for 2015.
- Contact us to remove any rubbish dumped on your estate that could set fire.
- Call us if you see anyone in your neighbourhood playing with fireworks or building and lighting bonfires.
Fireworks and the law
Did you know that you can't buy "adult" fireworks (category two and three) until you're 18?
And that it's against the law to set them off between 11pm and 7am, except:
Midnight and 7am on November 5th,
1am and 7am on New Year's Eve, Diwali and Chinese New Year.
Read Fireworks: The Law for further details.
Report any incidents to the team at Peabody Direct and we'll pass the information on to the relevant department.Contact Peabody Direct
