When to have a Bonfire

Neighbour has just stunk out the whole of Nevill with bonfire, - went on for hours, and set just after a rainy day! Lesson commencing now - 1. Wait until your garden rubbish has really dried out. 2. Wait also for the wind to be blowing away from houses/the estate. 3. DO NOT light your bonfire just after a rainy day. 4. if you're going to have a bonfire and not compost/take to tip, make sure it's a quick blast and not one that goes on for hours and hours.

I always thought it was generally agreed that the best time to start a bonfire was on one of the few sunny days, particularly when you can see everyone has their windows open and maybe hung their washing out.

Never is a good time. Take it to the tip instead of polluting the air.

Good thinking environmentalist. I'll load up the branches into my car and drive it down to the tip (two petrol using trips) rather than burn it which is actually a carbon neutral activity. Genius!
When I was growing up garden bonfires were normal. I don't know what's gone wrong that now people think they have to tread on eggshells around doing it once a year.

Totally agree, nobody batted an eyelid at garden bonfires years ago. Now, with all this global warming testicles, everyone wants to blame a bit of smouldering garden bonfire smoke for causing it.
Then Christ, on the 5th Nov suddenly everyone goes mad for it. And just think how many Guy Fawkes nights have been rainy with smoke mingling and lingering in the damp night misty air.
As long as it's simple garden rubbish I can't see the problem, it's the burning of plastics, household items like a sofa, or a mattress etc that is wrong. And heaven forbid, car tyres.
