  1. Those times for Middleton and Belle Isle are just brilliant, I’m almost sure lights are supposed to be seen at night. I wonder if they got the idea from some of the locals setting fireworks off during daylight hours!

  2. I do hope my hard earned council tax money hasn’t paid towards this rubbish just for the lazy Benefit Scroungers in Hunslet who pay no Council tax can marvel at. Waste of money when other services need funds.

  3. Hi ,
