Reduce the impact of fireworks

I write to ask you to please work with the RSPCA who have drafted some suggested text for a motion - (https://aaf1a18515da0e792f78-c27fdabe952dfc357fe25ebf5c8897ee.ssl.cf5.rackcdn.com/143/Council+Firework+Motion_2019_England.pdf) - which could form the basis of a proposal to the local authority to take more action on this issue. It would be great if you could encourage your fellow councillors to pass a motion similar to this to improve animal welfare in this area

I am writing to you as I am extremely concerned resident in your council area about the misuse of fireworks and their impact on animals. As an animal lover I really do feel more needs to be done to protect their welfare.

While I understand that they can bring much enjoyment to some people, they can cause significant injury, problems and fear for other people and animals. In particular the sudden, loud noises that many fireworks make can cause fear. The RSPCA supports measures which will help ensure people can enjoy fireworks responsibly while mitigating potentially significant animal welfare problems for pets, horses, farm animals and wildlife.

It would be great if you could encourage your fellow councillors to pass a motion similar to this to improve animal welfare in this area
