BRIGHTLY coloured and glittering pictures of fireworks have been put on display in the window of award-winning Midhurst pharmacy, on North 
Street.

The sparkling artwork created by Midhurst Nursey class was put up in the town last week to draw attention to firework safety.

Each child at the nursey designed their own firework display using paint, coloured paper, glitter and stars against a night-time sky.

Sue Philpott, Healthcare assisstant at Midhurst Pharmacy, said: “We really love the display, it is so brightly coloured and we are sure the children really enjoyed making it.”

“It is important that people, and most importantly, children are made aware of firework safety from a young age because they can be very dangerous.”

“We wanted to really emphasise to young children that bonfires fireworks can be really fun if they listen to the rules.”

“The children aren’t very old but I think the display looks great.”

“I saw a young couple walking past the window and they pointed at it so it obviously caught 
their eye.”

“We wanted all the children’s names to be up in the window too so none of them felt left out and so they could all be proud of their work!”

Included in the display is a safety poster outlining safety tips for what can be an exciting but dangerous time of year.

Among the safety tips were warnings not to give sparklers to the under fives, to stand well back from big bonfires and not to go near a lit firework.

Midhurst nursery class have had a busy week, going the The Grange in Midhurst to meet the builders and have a go on one of the stationery diggers.
