Garden Waste and Bonfires – please be considerate to your neighbours

The weather is slowly getting better and we are now able to get out into our gardens.

Please remember to be consider your neighbours. Speak to your neighbours and check that their windows are closed.

Try to have your bonfire when the smoke does not blow across their house, garden or washing. Many people suffer from asthma and other ailments that are seriously effected by inhaling smoke.

Remember ash travels a long way on the air currents and can end up dropping on your neighbours lovely clean patio or burning their favourite roses.

With the best intentions the wind can change and bonfire smoke changes direction so just put the fire out.

Wet or new weeded plants make for a very smoky bonfire so wait till they are dry or if possible compost them and get free fertiliser for next year.
