Bonfires on the War Memorial Recreational Ground

Bonfires on the War Memorial Recreational Ground

The Town Council would like to highlight to all visitors to the War Memorial Recreation Ground that the use of bonfires is not permitted and will be treated like other forms of malicious damage by being reported to the police.

On Friday evening, 19th May, a bonfire was lit very close to the pavilion on the Rec which could have had serious consequences had it got out of control.

The Chair of Green Spaces, Cllr Alex Stennett said "If anyone has any information on those responsible for this reckless behaviour or witness future occurrences, I would ask you contact the local police by telephoning 101." More »

The Town Clerk said "This month we have continued our investment in the town's Green Spaces with new picnic benches and litter bin at Highfields Play Area, it is worrying that our future plans could be impacted significantly by the actions of a few."

For more information on our planned improvements and our Community Day at Highfields Play Area on 29th May 2017, please contact the Town Clerk by email: clerk@dursleytowncouncil.gov.uk or by telephone 01453 547758 » Less
