There will be no fireworks characterize at Leverhulme Park for Bonfire Night this year, the council has confirmed.
The characterize at the popular park has been a famous event in the past, however, Bolton Council has confirmed it will not be going ahead this year.
Bolton Council has said it does not have the required resources or budget to keep up a characterize safely.
A spokesperson for Bolton Council said: “Given constraints on budgets and resources, we have taken the difficult decision not to keep up a firework characterize in Leverhulme Park.
“With a meaningful risk of a spike in Covid-19 situations this winter, it would not be possible to permit social distancing or limit spectator numbers across the site.
“We understand many people will be disappointed, but it is vital we keep people safe and avoid putting additional pressure on our NHS.”
The council is also working with the fire service and police to promote safety messages around Covid-19, Halloween and Bonfire night.
