Great fireworks - but not much room to stand and watch
The fireworks, as usual, were very good. However, this year the security fencing had been moved further away from the fireworks presumably, due to more stringent safety regulations. However, this meant that many people, including my family, were stuck in the crowded lane leading to the field where the fireworks were being set off and children, being surrounded by adults, weren't able to see the fireworks properly. I fully appreciate that public safety is paramount, but don't understand why the fireworks themselves weren't moved 20 or so feet back from the crowd, to allow people to enter the field and form a long line along the edge to allow a good view for everybody.
