Designs on promoting firework safety
Schoolchildren in Bath are being encouraged to think about how to stay safe around fireworks as part of an annual poster competition.
For the second year running, the Rotary Club of Bath and the University of Bath students' union are pooling their resources to put on a display at The Rec on the first weekend of November.
And, in the build-up to the display, sponsored by Bath Building Society, more than 7,000 primary-aged youngsters have been given the opportunity to design a poster with a safety message.
The competition, which will see the winners getting vouchers for the Bath Building Society Futurebuilder children's saving account, was launched at Three Ways School.

Alan Keeling, chairman of the club's fireworks committee, said the collaboration between the club and the Bath students' union, which previously ran separate events, had worked well last year.
"We have decided to continue with this intergeneration project.
"The display is a unique event which is looked forward to by children and adults in Bath.
"As always with fireworks, safety is a key factor and so we are launching this year's show with a big safety message primarily aimed at kids. The school competition should ensure that even the youngest participants are aware of potential dangers of fireworks if handled incorrectly."
The display will raise money for the Peggy Dodd Centre, Sue Ryder, Dorothy House, the Forever Friends Appeal and Mentoring Plus.
The display will take place on Saturday, November 3 and tickets can be bought in advance at Bath Building Society offices, the University of Bath campus, Bath Rugby ticket office or at the gate on the night.
Standard admission costs £5 if bought in advance and £6 on the gate. Child tickets are £3, while student tickets cost £3 in advance, and £5 at the gate.
