If you decide to have a bonfire, kindly consider these recommendations from South Norfolk Council:
- DO NOT burn damp grass clippings or ‘green’ material as this creates thick smoke.
- DO NOT light a bonfire when your neighbours have washing drying, or are out enjoying their gardens or have windows wide open.
- DO NOT light bonfires one hour before dusk, or leave them burning overnight. Choose the time of day and weather conditions that will cause the least inconvenience to neighbours.
- DO advise your nearest neighbours before you light a bonfire so they can be prepared for any minor inconvenience that may arise.
