If you are having a Barbecue in the Garden:


    • Don’t put it on the benches or tables or on the grass (it burns it, even if the barbecue is slightly raised). Use the gravel paths. Be aware of the direction of the wind so as to avoid smoke blowing on to other Garden users.
    • Be aware that any food left behind attracts rats and encourages foxes to scavenge and scatter it around and no one wants that!
    • Clear up all your mess, including barbecue trays, afterwards and take it home with you. Do not use the garden bins as they are too small for large amounts of rubbish. If you have to put anything in the bin ensure that it is properly wrapped against predators and that the bin lid is secured.
    • Don’t put any ash on the flower beds.
    • Douse the charcoal with water from the taps at the North or South ends of the Garden. People have been known to go away leaving behind their still-burning barbecues. This is obviously dangerous for other Garden users.
    • If your barbecue is too hot to take away when you leave the Garden, please come and collect it later on or the next day.

NOTE: Any barbecues or other equipment left in the Garden may be disposed of without warning
