……. not so much to you and I perhaps but, as a rural community with more four legged residents than two legged ones, the period around the 5th November always presents a challenge for livestock and animal owners. Please take some time to think about how your actions will affect your neighbours and fellow villagers if you are lighting a bonfire and letting off fireworks. Please liaise with your neighbours.
It is important to remember that the organiser of an event – whatever size – has the responsibility to protect neighbours including their livestock, animals and property.
There’s a piece attached here Bonfires and Fireworks 2019 that explains the laws that you should be aware of and provides advice on ensuring your safety and that of others.
Enjoy the “season” but please don’t ruin it for others!
