The misuse of fireworks will be in the spotlight at a series of events in Aberdeen.
The Scottish Government launched a consultation in February into steps that can be taken to protect the public from fireworks.
Now, two public events will be held at Aberdeen Town House next Monday, to give residents the chance to voice their concerns.
Tickets for both of the free events, due to start at 2pm and 6pm respectively, can be booked by going to EventBrite.
Attendees will be able to voice their opinions, positive and negative, about the Scottish Government position on the misuse of fireworks.
Following the consultations, which are being held across the country, a summary report of views will be submitted to the government for consideration.
A spokeswoman for the Scottish Government said: “We’ve had an excellent response to fireworks consultation so far, with more than 12,000 people having given us their views within its first week on what they think needs to be done to ensure fireworks can continue to be enjoyed safely.
“This response demonstrates the importance of this issue to people and communities across Scotland.
“Public events are being held across Scotland and we encourage people to come along to events in their area and join in the discussion.”

Views can also be logged online, by going to the Scottish Government website, as well as attending the public events.
The ability to legislate the sale and regulations of the pyrotechnics is a reserved power held only by the UK Government.
However the Scottish Government has legal power over their misuse.
The consultation was announced in November by Community Safety Minister Ash Denham, who called on the public to help the Scottish Government identify “gaps in the current laws”.
At the time, she said: “From conversations with members of the public and emergency service workers, I am aware of concern about the use and sale of fireworks to individuals.
“We want to work with others to reduce the negative impact of fireworks and the public’s voice is vital in shaping our approach going forward.”
She added: “While much of existing legislation on the sale of fireworks is reserved to Westminster, we hope this consultation will identify any gaps in the law and highlight where the regulation of fireworks could be improved.”
