South Norfolk Council discourages bonfires as they cause air pollution, upset neighbours and can damage health, particularly of children, older people, and those with breathing and heart conditions.
There are many ways to dispose of waste without burning it, including garden waste disposal through our garden waste collection scheme and other items through our bulky waste collection service.
Most waste, including garden waste, is accepted free of charge at the Norfolk County Council Recycling Centres. There are several located across South Norfolk, please see the Norfolk County Council website to find your nearest recycling centre and check
their opening times.
If you do choose to have a bonfire at home, it is your responsibility to ensure it does not cause a statutory nuisance to neighbours.
The following precautions should be taken:
- Notify your neighbours in advance so you can ensure your
bonfire does not interfere with their activities, such as drying laundry and use of their garden
- Ensure the bonfire is located as far from your neighbour’s
properties as possible and away from trees, fences and
anything that could catch fire
- Burn only dry garden waste and never materials such as
domestic waste, painted items, plastics, furniture, textiles or
wet garden waste including leaves
- Never use accelerants such as petrol to start your fire
- Check the weather conditions and wind direction so that the smoke doesn’t blow into your neighbour’s properties or hang
in the air on damp, still days
- Supervise the fire at all times and ensure it is totally
extinguished at the end.
Dog owners are reminded that it is offence for a person in control of a dog not to clear up the dog mess immediately on any land that is open to the air and to which the public is entitled or permitted to have access.
Please also be reminded that Wortwell Parish Council has a byelaw applying to the playing fields whereby no person in charge of a dog (other than a
registered blind person in charge of a dog) shall permit the dog to enter or
remain in the grounds.

The 2018 outdoor bowls season has already started with glorious weather and a win for Wortwell!
There has already been a Monday afternoon “roll up” with some potential new members attending. Anyone can attend these sessions which start at 2pm.
We play in 2 leagues a mixed gender league on a Tuesday evening and
a male league on Wednesdays. Games are always followed by
refreshments with the other team, a great chance to meet new people and have a laugh.
Last year we finished 3rd in the mixed league and second in the EBA league which means we were promoted in The EBA to division 1 south.
The club has also installed a new irrigation system for the bowling green with the help of a grant from South Norfolk District Council.
This means we will be able to produce a higher quality playing surface and will also save members hours of work with hoses!
If you are interested in trying outdoor bowls please pop along on a Monday afternoon or come and watch a game on Tuesday or Wednesday evenings from 7pm or ring 01986 788622
