Western Isles pet owners has welcomed an initiative from the administrators of the Facebook page Western Isles Noticeboard, listing upcoming bonfire and firework displays.

The post started at the weekend (Saturday 19th October) asks anyone intending to let off fireworks to post their date and time, so that nearby pet-owners can make arrangements to keep their pets safe.

The idea’s been welcomed by animal-owners, with displays and household firework parties being listed.

The earliest display is on Saturday (October 26th) at Newmarket Playpark, but most displays are scheduled for the period between November 2nd and 9th.
