If you are thinking of lighting a garden bonfire, please think first about the impact on your neighbours.

The majority of us are at home and many are trying to make the most of our outside space as the weather improves and the days are getting longer. It is annoying to be forced from your garden by smoke. It is particularly important that any residents who are self isolating because they have the symptoms of Covid-19 keep their rooms well ventilated - this would be impossible if smoke from garden fires is blowing into their house. It's not illegal to light a bonfire but please think twice.
