You can only have a barbeque in certain parts of Brandon Hill (map) (pdf, 332KB) (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.
