Hello resident,
Information from Halton Trading Standards.

Be Fireworks Safe
Halton Trading Standards is urging residents to ensure that they only buy fireworks from licensed retailers and they are stored and marked correctly. All fireworks must carry a CE mark – a manufacturer’s declaration that the goods conform to European safety standards.
