Garden bonfires
« on: July 09, 2011, 08:28:43 PM »
Why oh why do some people think it's acceptable to pollute what was a lovely evening with a garden bonfire?  :x Yes I know it's not against the law and yes I know not everyone can take their rubbish to the tip or can afford the garden refuse bags from the council. Even so, couldn't they at least wait until it's got a bit darker and the breeze has died down??? I notice that they are sly enough to place the bonfire at the top of their garden so the breeze blows it away from their house and straight into other peoples'. May their vegetables rot and their flowers die!! :evil:

Yes there was one yesterday afternoon coming from around the East Fleet area. The trouble is if you don't consider the direction the wind is blowing in when having a bonfire you can affect a lot of people.

It's 11.30 on a sunny Saturday morning and as I type more smoke from yet another garden bonfire is gently wafting into my garden and through my windows. Oh the joy of living in the East street and Lower Way area :x
