Warnings about the use of sky lanterns, fireworks and barbeques

With the end of school approaching and various summer celebrations taking place across the county, please be aware of the dangers of using sky lanterns & fireworks to celebrate.

They can be extremely dangerous and pose a significant risk to livestock and could start a serious fire if they come into contact with standing crops which may be very dry in this period of hot weather.

Please also be careful when using a bbq. Only use them in a suitable and safe area, never leave them unattended and make sure they are fully extinguished after use. 

Thank you!
