bonfire selfishness
- Hj (16th Jul 2021 17:19:34)

Thanks to the selfish people having a bonfire on our first day of summer! Peoples selfishness astounds me!

Get off your high horse, people have to eat, drink, breathe and get rid of garden waste whenever they like. Have a think about your own behaviour before writing on here - do YOU do things that annoy your neighbours? Having garden parties until late, leaving your car running for ten minutes in the morning before you leave your driveway, having bonfires when it is inconvenient for others? I'm afraid it's all subjective. And the world doesn't revolve around you.

Bonfires are part of country life. If it is that upsetting move into a city, London is quite close.

Happy to help.

Bonfires when the thermometer is displaying 30 + are unreasonable,as most people will have their windows and doors open in some attempt to stay cool.
There are plenty of other days when the weather is indifferent to have a bonfire,or just take it to the recycling depot.

Passfield yesterday late afternoon/ evening was a case in point.
Some incredibly selfish, inconsiderate people too lazy to visit the recycling and think on the hottest day that it’s ok to burn their garden waste.

What is the urgency, do tell!?

Perhaps the courtesy levels in Griggs Green where M lives are different than for us mere mortals who are lucky enough to not have M as a neighbour!

Nothing to do with country living, this was uneccesary and deliberate, I went to bed at 11.00 and was woken by an acrid bonfire smell at about 01.00, had to close all the windows on a very warm night. Does anyone know who this asshole is ? Who would light a fire at that time other than to wind people up ?

I have seen numerous posts on here in the past moaning about bonfires during the day asking people to be more considerate and light them in the evening. This fire it seems was after 11pm and whoever it was is still getting moaned at. I suppose you cant please all of the people all of the time.

If a bonfire was lit as you say late at night, that would seem unreasonable and unnecessary.

Why is it so urgent to burn waste in such hot and dry weather?

There are 4 simple solutions for anyone to choose;

Delay the bonfire.

Take it to the recycling depot.

Compost it.

Employ a licensed contractor to remove it.

What is so difficult to understand here?

Unless of course this is malicious, and if so report it, make a note of dates, and times, with pics / videos.

Either way you clearly don’t have great neighbors!
Don’t let them wind you up, they will then be winning......

Just wanted to also say that I've noticed someone is setting their bonfire late at night. I woke up at 3am last week with a strong smell of smoke, realised it was from outside.

Have to ask why someone has to burn in the middle of the night. Are they hiding something?
