Celebrate safely!


‘Celebrate safely’ is the message from the Littlehampton Bonfire Society Safety Advisory Group to spectators attending the town’s Bonfire Night on Saturday 27th October. ‘Local residents and spectators can help to make it a safe and enjoyable evening for everyone by following the simple advice in the safety leaflet which is being distributed with our Bonfire Night programmes. We hope that everyone will follow this advice, to ensure the safety of both themselves and those around them.’


Residents and spectators must not attempt to park along the procession routes, which are subject to road closure orders. The emergency services have also requested that they park responsibly, allowing space for emergency vehicles to pass if necessary. Arun District Council and Sussex Police will be enforcing no parking regulations in roads subject to road closures, and any vehicles illegally parked will be ticketed and towed to Fontwell. Statutory fees will be charged for their release. In the event of any damage to vehicles, owners may also find that their insurance is invalid if the vehicle is illegally parked. Car parking bays in Sea Road will be closed all day and evening.


The do’s and don’ts to take note of if you are planning to come along to the celebrations are as follows:




The times of the main events during the evening and details of the procession routes are to be found in the Bonfire Night programme, on sale at local shops, and in the High Street precinct on the morning of the celebrations. See the society’s website for programme stockists.




Please do not bring any alcohol with you as the whole of the event takes place within the alcohol exclusion zone. The police may confiscate and dispose of it.


Don’t play with fireworks


Do not set off fireworks in the street. It is both dangerous and illegal, and carries a £5,000 fine. Do not bring sparklers - they can be dangerous in a crowded environment.


Don’t pick up torches


Keep away from discarded torches, they may still be hot. Do not attempt to pick up discarded torches - they have been put down because they are no longer safe to hold. Do not place litter in the water butts which are for extinguishing torches. Keep clear of the rear of the processions to allow the marshals to pick up the discarded torches. Keep windows along the procession routes closed to avoid the risk of fire from flying embers.


Keep behind barriers


Keep out of the bonfire, fireworks and float dispersal safety areas. Keep on the pavements as the processions pass, and behind the crowd barriers which you will find at certain points along the procession route. Do not allow children to sit on the kerb, or push prams or pushchairs into the road while the procession is passing by. If you haven’t got a good view of the procession, move to a less densely crowded part of the route. Do not attempt to walk on or cross the road while the processions are passing by. Wear


suitable non-flammable clothing. Do not shine any laser beams directly at participants or members of the crowd – it is extremely dangerous to do so.




Lost children will be taken to St John Ambulance Mobile Base in Banjo Road.


First aid


A St John Ambulance first aid point will be located in Banjo Road on the seafront. St John Ambulance personnel will also be found in the processions and along the procession routes.


In an emergency


In the event of an emergency you are asked to quickly respond to directions given by marshals and / or the emergency services. Be aware of the knee rail fence around the perimeter of The Green, especially if The Green has to be evacuated in an emergency.


Littlehampton Bonfire Society has issued a plea to spectators attending Bonfire Night not to purchase balloons,

glow sticks and other carnival novelties from street traders.


‘Any street traders attempting to sell balloons, glow sticks and similar novelty items will be uninvited. They do not contribute to the costs of staging the celebrations and in previous years have caused obstructions. We would very strongly request that spectators put their money in our collection buckets instead to support our chosen beneficiaries.


Official refreshment vendors - who do generously contribute to the costs of staging the event -

will be found on the bonfire site (East Green car park), The Green, Banjo Road and at William Cole’s fun fair on the promenade.’

After Press reports about potentially flammable Fancy Dress costumes,

Littlehampton Bonfire Society is advising spectators to wear suitable non-flammable clothing to the event.

In 2014 Television presenter Claudia Winkleman’s daughter was burned when her Halloween fancy dress costume accidentally caught fire.

Since then, demonstrations by fire services across the country have shown just how quickly some fancy dress costumes can catch fire.

Please be aware of lit torches passing you and the risk of fire from flying embers and keep away from discarded torches.
