  5. I hear on the grapevine that rep's from WBC have visited Blackpool Council with a view to purchasing some redundant tableau scenes. The tableau scenes will be erected around Market gate in time for the Royal Wedding. A spokesman revealed that along side the scenes street lighting poles will be decorated red , white and blue and the lighting units will be replaced by colored filters. The tableau's will remain in place for 5 day's and then stored away for future event's. When pressed, the council spokesman would not reveal the total cost of this project. Miss Aprile Oneseer, Community Representative.
  6. Ho Ho Ho ! Hello Dizzy. Just checking my naughty list and your name pops up with great frequency ! Although in your favor, My elves say that you have been VERY VERY GOOD this year .. Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Peaceful New Year . Father Christmas , North Pole.
  7. It is with great sadness that Blackbrook Community Association have had to cancel this years grotto due to circumstances beyond our control. We have spoken to Father Christmas and although he to is very sad He assures us that it will be " business as usual on Christmas Eve" The Grotto will be back next Christmas Bigger and Better than ever !
  8. Thanks Sha . I too agree that the sale of fireworks needs to be seriously looked at. Organized events are monitored by the local authorities with event notification's forms to be submitted. There are limit's on how loud a bang a firework makes. Interesting how a bang free display would be received by the public. Might try it next year.
  9. Hi Asperity. Your comments made me laugh. They do explain why i now have a WW2 sea mine floating in my garden pond !

  10. Firstly Obs can you explain what the word " anachronistic " means ? Secondly, I do not consider H/S as " bumff" . In one of your previous live's I assume you took H/S very seriously. What next Obs ? 21 gun salutes to use noiseless shells ? . Thirdly , I am amazed of your levity of the very serious action's taking place right now in Syria where every loud bang more than likely ends in some poor innocent life being lost. Get real Obs, your a big fish in a very small pond !
  11. In view of recent alleged problem's at a local firework event, I would like to give a little insight into the planning and the carrying out of the organized display's that I and my crew conduct at local event's. We have produced display's for over 20 years. We compile a folder that contains all the information of the planned event, A, Public liability to the amount of £ 20,000,000, through Zurich Insurance. B, A full and comprehensive risk assessment for each individual event. C, A field plan of the event. D, A mission statement. E, Health and Safety . F, A description of the display including the classification of the firewwork's and the capabilities of the actual fire crew. This folder is then presented to the relevant person's who can either say yes or no to the display. That's just for starts. We then carry out a series of site visits prior to the events to ensure that nothing as changed , IE a new building or area of special interest. We ensure that each event has sufficient marshall's as per H&S regulation's. Crowd control, Fall out area's, Safety zones. All relevant bodies are forewarned of the event, IE Police, Fire & rescue, Ambulance service and the notification to Manchester and Liverpool airport's. Flyers are distributed to local homes detailing the event and advising them to care for their pet's. This is just a brief insight into the planning of a safe organized display. Blackbrook Community Association volunteer's are highly trained in the safe and entertaining production of a display. In light of recent event's, Blackbrook Community Association can offer a free consultation to any local group or organization that are thinking of producing their own fire work display.
  12. Blackbrook Community Association's Annual Firework Display. Saturday 4th November. 5-30pm to 8-30 pm Display ( weather permitting ) 7-30 pm At the rear of the Hawthorn Center, Orange grove. DJ & Music, Food, Indoor Stall's Mr Entertainer, " BARRINGTON." Free Entry, Please do not bring your own fireworks !!!
  13. Hi grey_man. If your luck is anything like mine , You will probably end up with Ingamar Johansson and not Scarlett !
  14. Hi Bazj. Your right Bazj, it should be in the interest of the council to take a more proactive role in recycling, unfortunately this is not the case. We at BCA are now looking at plans to ensure that the council take a more proactive role in our next " skip day " . We need to bring these departments out of their comfort zones, lose their attitude of " it cant be done " and replace it with the attitude " you have a problem with recycling ? how can we help ?" One thing that did come out of our project was the negative attitude residents have towards WBC when it comes to recycling and rubbish removal's in general
