The fire ban will probably be brought forward to 15 October again this year. The usual start on 1 December is highly unlikely with the dryish Winter we had.
High time to start the clean up immediately behind the house. Raking up leaves and small twigs and branches. Picking up big branches. Mowing the grass. Piling it all up and lighting the bonfire while conditions are good.This is only the beginning. More areas to clean up and more bonfires to burn. The less fuel around the place, the better!
