Fireworks are a ton of fun but carry real risks that need to be taken seriously. If you plan on lighting some here's some tips to keep everyone in your community safe and happy.

❌ 1. Never light fireworks in dry or windy conditions.

🔥 2. Only use fireworks in wide open areas, away from flammable items such as trees, grasses, gas tanks, and wood.

💦 3. Keep a bucket of water or hose nearby.

👧 4. Children should never light fireworks themselves and need to be supervised closely at all times.

🧰 5. Keep all unlit fireworks in a secure bag or container away from any source of fire until they are ready to be used.

📞 6. Be considerate and let neighbours know if you're planning to set off fireworks. Aim to finish at a reasonable time.

🐱 7. Keep pets comfortable and secure inside. The loud booms and flashing lights can easily scare them off.

🐮 8. Avoid lighting off fireworks around farm animals and be aware of any newborns or elderly neighbours who may also be affected. If possible, change locations to somewhere that minimises any disturbances.

🌿 9. Be a tidy Kiwi and let's work together to keep New Zealand beautiful! Clean up any any rubbish and leave your spot better than you found it.

On a mild Wednesday evening, over 450 walkers and runners, some in costumes and others in wheelchairs, participated in the Hawke's Bay Multiple Sclerosis Society Multiple Steps fundraising event.

MS affects one in every thousand people, so many of those participating live with the MS or know someone with the condition.

We provided resources, facilities and refreshments as part of our Giving for Good programme, in support of our colleague Kendall Hinton, who was diagnosed with MS several years ago.

MS manifests in a wide spectrum of conditions from mild pain to severe disability. Progress with treatment and management allows many MSers to lead fully functioning lives. While genetic and environment factors influence the condition, the cause remains unknown.

This event provides a friendly opportunity for serious runners and recreational walkers, while raising awareness of the work of the MS Society.

MS Hawke's Bay is represented by Nicola Brown, 06 835-8542.
