Fireworks

Does anyone know who had the firework display in the community field last night (17th)as they left all the debris behind? This  activity invalidates the community  field insurance and is  very distressing for the horses in the adjoining field. Please contact  Andrew Jenkins 01747 840773 if you have any further information
