BONFIRE night is approaching and Wrexham council, the police and fire authority are working together to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable night.
Wrexham council has agreed they will remove all bonfires built on public land before November 1 and will remove bonfires built after that date if the police or firefighters feel they post a risk.
The move forms part of a series of measures such as introducing a Fireworks Good Neighbour Guide, a clampdown on under-age firework sales and advising on the safest way to buy fireworks.
Bonfires can count as dropping litter so those responsible could incur a fine of £75 and be charged for removing the rubbish.
Cllr David Bithell, lead member for environment and transport, said: “Anyone concerned about a fire being built should contact our Pride in Your Streets number – 01978 298989.”
Two bulbs for one
FROM tomorrow until Sunday (Friday October 31-November 2) anyone who takes a traditional light bulb to any B&Q store will receive two energy-saving bulbs to replace it, helping customers to reduce their carbon footprint and electricity bills.
BREAST Cancer Campaign is encouraging Wrexham people to celebrate bonfire night with a gourmet get-together.
They want you to hold a barbecue or dinner party for bonfire night, invite your friends and family and ask them for a recommended donation of £15 each to help the campaign to beat breast cancer.
