Bonfires in the Parish
Reminders for the safety of us all:- barbecues can be a nuisance to neighbours so please be considerate, bonfires can also be a nuisance and are a fire risk to property and the Forest during dry weather, please do not light a bonfire when gardens, commons and the Forest are dry and never in windy weather.
IF YOU ARE THINKING OF HAVING A BONFIRE ON YOUR PROPERTY - AND YOUR NEIGHBOUR'S PROPERTY IS THATCHED .......................
BE A GOOD NEIGHBOUR!
CHECK WITH THE OWNER BEFORE YOU LIGHT THE FIRE, FOR MOST THATCHED PROPERTY INSURANCE POLICIES SPECIFY THAT A BONFIRE LIT WITHIN 30 METRES OF THE PROPERTY INVALIDATES THE POLICY COVER.
