Guy Fawkes tonight

IT’S Guy Fawkes tonight and annually a time when people let off fireworks in commemoration of the Gunpowder Plot of the year 1605. The Gunpowder Plot was meant to kill King James I and to destroy the English Parliament with one of the main conspirators a man named Guy Fawkes.

There is a fireworks session planned near the Bonkolo Dam which is far away from the sensitive ears of pets which may be spooked by the noise. The SPCA annually reports on dogs which are lost or even killed while trying to escape the noise, so hopefully no-one will consider setting off fireworks in town.
