An annual date to remember

I DID smile when I read Gordon Garment’s letter (Your View November 15) asking for some warning of bonfire night firework displays.

While I can sympathise with Mr Garment, it is more than 400 years since the Observance of November 5 Act was drawn up and I do wonder just how much more warning anyone might need. In my experience of such things, if not celebrated on the date itself then the nearest Saturday tends to attract such parties too.
