With such lovely weather people are getting out and about and enjoying the sun. If you are planning to have a BBQ can you give some thought to where you do it. There has been damage to Westfield Common over the weekend and with such dry weather there is a risk of the fires getting out of hand and presenting a real danger to people and the local environment. We don’t want to stop people having fun but please be careful, respect the environment and clear up after you have finished
