We are asking residents to be considerate to their neighbours and avoid having bonfires.
Smoke from fires can:
- aggravate the symptoms of vulnerable people
- cause people stress when they are staying at home to shield, isolate or social distance.
Additionally, the risk of uncontrolled fires places unnecessary demand on the Fire Service.
By not having bonfires you are supporting everyone to stay at home and allowing the council and the Fire Service to focus resources where they are most needed.
