Barbeques (BBQs)

You can only have a barbeque in certain parts of Brandon Hill (map) (pdf, 332k) (opens new window) . You must not have the BBQ in a children's play area and the BBQ must be:

  • shop bought, not home-made
  • placed on the ground, not on park furniture
  • on legs, so the grass isn't burnt
  • watched when lit
  • cold before it's put in a rubbish bin

You must put all litter in a rubbish bin or take it home with you.

Open fires aren't allowed.
