Bonfires

With warming weather, many people are out tending to their gardens, hanging washing on the line and leaving windows open around the house for ventilation.

Smoke from garden bonfires can prevent your neighbours from enjoying their garden, opening windows or hanging washing out and can be an irritant for those people that have health conditions, such as asthma.

With the Romsley Recycling Centre closed and the District Council not currently emptying brown bins, more residents are lighting bonfire to get rid of their garden waste, this is causing many complaints.

Is that bonfire necessary?

Householders are therefore urged to consider an alternative method of disposing of garden waste e.g. composting, which can provide a useful soil enricher for your own garden.  Compost heaps/bins also provide a home for many insects, voles and even slow worms.

How to prevent smoke nuisance

If it is essential to burn material in the open air, please follow the advice below:

  • Light your fire when your neighbours are not likely to be in their gardens, having windows open for ventilations or washing on their line.  Speak to your neighbours and liaise with them.
  • All material to be burnt should be as clean and dry as possible
  • Bonfires should be sited as far as possible away from any houses
  • Check the wind direction to prevent smoke from being blown into your neighbours’ property or onto roads
  • Never burn plastics, oil, rubber, electrical components or other chemicals as these materials produce toxic and offensive fumes
  • All bonfires should be closely supervised, since they are potentially dangerous. Do not leave a fire smouldering – put it out using soil or water

What do I do if my neighbour is regularly having bonfires and I think it is a nuisance?

If you wish to make a complaint about a neighbour’s bonfire, please contact Bromsgrove District Council.

Government issue guidance on Volunteering

Volunteering will be crucial in the response to coronavirus and people have not been stopped from doing this.

However, volunteering that requires going out of the house is now only permitted in certain circumstances. If you are well and are not at risk from coronavirus you can undertake essential activities including:

Delivering food

Helping people with their medical needs, such as picking up prescriptions

Providing essential care or to help a vulnerable person or person(s), including through essential public and voluntary services, such as food banks, homeless services, and blood donation sessions

Voluntary organisations are supporting people across the UK in this time of high need, providing practical, emotional and social support.

You can find local volunteering opportunities by visiting Do-IT, Volunteering Matters, or Reach Volunteering.

You could approach your local volunteer centre, or find your local member of the National Association for Voluntary and Community Action.

Government Issue Guidance on How to stay safe when accepting help from others

If you are receiving voluntary help do not share financial details like credit/debit card numbers or personal information.

If someone you don’t know calls at your home, always ask for ID and always ensure you are comfortable sharing details like your phone number or address. Only provide information on a need to know basis and if you have seen ID. Do not feel pressured into providing information. If you have doubts about those who are approaching you, and are concerned, it is advised that you don’t engage, and report serious suspicious behaviour to the police.

Remember that genuine volunteers have been instructed not to enter your home.

Suspicious Volunteers Doing the Rounds

PLEASE TELL YOUR ELDERLY NEIGHBOURS – Give them a phone call

Over the last few days, social workers have reported a number of suspicious volunteers targeting vulnerable people in Worcestershire.

The County Council’s advice is to take normal precautions but don’t be afraid to accept offers of help from those you know and trust.

We advise people ask to see identification, and not allow anyone in their homes unless they are certain they are genuine.

Anyone who believes they have been visited by a bogus volunteer should contact the police.

Remember you can also apply for genuine help via Worcestershire County Council’s website http://worcestershire.gov.uk/here2help for by giving them a call 01905 768053.
