Bonfires

It has come to the attention of the Parish Council that bonfires are frequently being lit in parts of North Waltham throughout the day, which are preventing residents opening their windows, enjoying their gardens or hanging out washing. Bonfires also give rise to air pollution and for anyone suffering from existing respiratory and other conditions, smoke can make breathing difficult and exacerbate symptoms. During this difficult time and in recognition of the difficulties and stresses many people have at the present time, residents are being asked not to have bonfires. Further advice about bonfires, alternative methods of disposing of waste and what to do if you are affected by bonfires is available from the BDBC website.      See full story...

Collection days remain unchanged. Further information can be found on the BDBC website.      See full story...
