    • I am concerned about the lack of regulation on garden bonfires in BOA. We overlook the Frome Road. Last summer various resident had bonfires, in fact there was one per day for 6 weeks. This included garden clearance people who move from garden along the row with a policy of slash and burn using petrol. Much cheaper than taking it away.
      All very smokey blowing towards the Fitzmauris School. I did contact the school for some support but they said they were unable to get involved. I also contacted my very local Wiltshire councillor who totally missed my point about regulation and just told me to monitor the situation. Obviously to wet for fires at present.
      Will we have another bonfire summer, cost of green bin does have an effect. Would appreciate Climate Friendly opinion!
