in gardens are permitted, but residents must take account of what impact these
will have on their neighbours, i.e. smoke, hot ash
blowing in the air etc. There is advice and guidance to be found on the website
at Tandridge District Council. Residents might like to check their house
insurance to see whether they are covered in the event of a fire inadvertently
spreading and damaging property not belonging to them. Bonfires should never be
left unattended and if a bonfire appears to be getting out of control, do not
hesitate. Call the Fire Brigade!

walkers will consolidate the surface over the coming weeks/months.

in the area to ensure drivers stick to the limits. It was interesting to watch
the response of dozens of car drivers yesterday as
they went past Hedgecourt Place.
Lots of headlamps flashing and reduced speeds! Why? A police patrol unit with a
speed gun parked in the lay by! Hopefully drivers will get the message and
stick to the new speed limits.
