No set amount as usual. But pretty much be the same as Somerset though around £200 on specialists but more about £50 on supermarkets.

Tbh there's not much point setting a budget as you always go over, our's for this year was £150, then £200, then £230, now more like £270 :rolleyes:
All a budget does is challenge you to spend more :D

lol, out-doing yourself can be the harder part, cause everyone's stashes I saw last year were superb, hard to beat without spending more money.
As for being the best in the area, of course! :D though where we are there's some bloke with a big garden who always seems to have loads, the Cheese and rice! on butter! had a boneshaker last year, made our pyro look Fudge Berries! :p

Sounds hard to bat with out spending a lot more. I like to shop savvy with fireworks though. Even it mean barting for a better price

congratulations rob, first double-typo of the year for the competition :D

That's the best way to shop for them, looking out for the good bargains :) You can get lots of good prices out-of-season i've found as well, during spring sales and the like. Only disadvantage of that is you miss out on the new stuff each year

I spent just over £500 last year but £400 of that was used for an Epic delivery. This year, i'm probably looking at £350 for an online order and I'll see what's on offer elsewhere but I'd like to stay under £500 if i can lol but you all know what it's like :)
