Environmental Health notices

Please avoid bonfires and consider your neighbours 

Environmental Health have received and increase in complaints over the last few weeks about waste bonfires. At this time while most of us have more time at home to clear out and tidy up please do not burn your waste, please wait until you can dispose of it in other ways. Bonfire smoke and even BBQ smoke can have a harmful effect on people with breathing difficulties, respiratory illness and those suffering with coronavirus. Please avoid bonfires and help to protect everyone adhering to the government’s advice and staying at home. People staying inside their homes will be needing to keep their windows open to get some fresh air, so please be a considerate neighbour during this crisis.
