Keep fireworks for November 5 only
AT the time of writing, the date is November 7 and there have been incendiary devices going off since 8.30pm. It is now 9.45pm and still going.
Do the selfish idiots on Clifford Park by Clifford Bridge Road not understand November 5 is for fireworks, not the week before or week after.
Parents with small children who are awakened by these explosives and are then frightened to go back to sleep are not happy, nor are the people whose animals are scared witless.
Yes I do like fireworks at the proper time. Pretty, silent ones should be for households, the explosives for organised events only.
So, stop being so selfish and think about other people and animals instead of yourself before letting off these devices on the wrong day. Name and address supplied
NOVEMBER 9, 1979: Coventry City players prove they really are Sky Blues Babes by posing in nappies and shower caps. Manager Gordon Milne acted as ‘nanny’ with a giant milk bottle for teenaged players. The publicity stunt was City’s way of telling the public they have a bright future.
