Sparklers

No Sparklers are allowed at the event – we are not covered by the insurance but more importantly the field we use is a grazing field for animals and sparklers are very harmful to the livestock

 

Recycling

We will be supplying recycling bins on site and these will be clearly marked out with yellow signage.
