Bath Building Society and The Rotary Club Bath have launched the 40th annual Fireworks Safety Poster competition at Moorlands Schools Federation in Bath.
Some of the Judges of the competition went to the school to see how the children were getting on with their posters.
Alan Keeling and Trevor Dawson from The Rotary Club and Tiffany Hardie-Albutt from Bath Building Society were on hand to help the students with their posters.
Tiffany Hardie-Albutt, spokesperson for Bath Building Society said: “It was great to see all the children doing their posters their enthusiasm and stories of fireworks were brilliant!
“Our involvement with the Fireworks hits 40 years this year and in those years we must have reached thousands of local children (who now have children of their own!) with the Fireworks Safety message.”
Alan Keeling, from The Rotary Club Bath, said: “The display is now in its 40th year and once again we have launched the event by asking all the primary schools within Bath to enter the Fireworks Safety Poster Competition, and as always the key factor is Fireworks Safety.
“The school competition will ensure that even the youngest participants are aware of the potential dangers of Fireworks if handled incorrectly.”
Tickets will go on sale from Thursday 1st October and are available from Bath Building Society branches, the Bath Property Letting Office in Southgate, the Bath Rugby Ticket Office and the Bath Box Office Ticket Agency (Bath Tourism Office).
Standard Adult admission is £5 if bought in advance, and £6 on the gate. Children’s tickets are £3 in advance and £4 on the gate.
Student tickets will be available from the Students’ Union at the University of Bath.
Mrs Carver, a Year 5 Teacher of the Kestrel class that were drawing posters from Moorlands Schools Federation, said: “It’s important for the children to enjoy the excitement of the Fireworks but to also be aware of the dangers that surround them.”
The poster competition aims to communicate to the school children in and around Bath that fireworks and bonfires can be extremely dangerous by getting them to draw a poster to show the safety aspects of the annual celebration.
All children entering the competition will be given a Free Child Voucher that can be exchanged for a ticket to the Display when purchasing an Adult ticket.
The Fireworks Display will take place on Saturday 7th November at The Recreation Ground and will be run by The Rotary Club Bath and sponsored by Bath Building Society.
All monies raised will go to The Trauma Recovery Centre in Bath and other local charities chosen by The Rotary.
