    Hello team

    Been a big fan of fireworks since I was a kid, always making my own bangers wrapping caps around coins, putting boxes of bangers into a small fire etc! When I was old enough to buy my own proper fireworks my parents were always against them. Soon as I was in my late teens me and some friends used to chip in and buy a few big ones and let them off in someone else’s garden.

    Somehow I managed to convince my parents to let me do a big session in 2009 as I was home from a stint working abroad, and had a small party, they let me and my friends let off about £500 worth in their garden and let’s just say it was amazing but they said never again!! I may have gone overboard with the fans and big single ignitions and they didn’t expect such a display.. oops!

    Well 9 years later I’ve got my own house and garden now, married, (she’s also a firework fan) and I’ll be picking up a stash hopefully this weekend in the big sale! I’ve been in the house for 3 years now so it’s about time the garden was christened (blackened !)

    Looking forward to being part of this community

    All the best
