Don’t let it burn

Many of us are enjoying our gardens more as lockdown restrictions continue to ease. BBQs, chimineas and fire pits are the focal point of many of our get-togethers.

Unfortunately we’ve had reports of a number of out of control fires, causing damage to fences and property.

Please take extra care when having fires in your gardens. Make sure that any fire or BBQ is not a danger to anyone, your garden or your neighbours' gardens. Take extra care with the location of your fire and clearing up the next day.

Take a look at the UK Fire Service's advice for fire safety in your garden tips.

If you live in one of our properties you are responsible for any fire or BBQ in your garden. You will have to cover the cost to repair any fire damage to yours or neighbouring properties, as detailed in your tenancy agreement.
