Keep fire­works for Novem­ber 5 only

Coventry Telegraph - - LETTERS -

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.
