perhaps all the residents that find it acceptable to have bonfires, could think before lighting up! Especially those in the Corbett Road/Crescent, area , including the funeral director!! We should all do our bit to help the environment, we all have very good recycling service for garden waste etc, NO NEED for bonfires.

May as well put someone at the crossroads traffic lights as the amount of people who throw discarded cigarettes out of their car windows is disgusting so can collect quite a few from there.
