For members, please see below for important information.

Please note in particular some key rules:

  • No bonfires before 6pm or dusk if earlier
  • No bonfires on Sundays or public holidays
  • Only dry material to be burnt along with dried diseased plant material
  • No bringing rubbish onto the site for burning

Please be considerate when burning, neighbours are greatly affected by smoke.

    I see it says no rubbish to be brought into sight to be burned! Does that include personal garden waste eg. Old trees, cuttings etc?

      Yes! You can bring things on site to compost, but not to burn please.

    Are all members aware of the No Hosepipes rule? Might be worth giving a reminder – or we may well face an astronomical water bill this dry summer….. Stewart

      Just to be aware, I found the toilet tap on twice yesterday: the first time between 9 and 9.30. I asked the only people who were on my road if any of them had been down there and they said not. I didn’t see anyone else on the middle road that early so, unless it someone on the Howard St road had been there, the tap could well have been running from the previous day. Not sure what else we can do when there is reminder right above the sink.
