Here are some tips on using barbeques safely so everyone can enjoy Highbury Fields:
Before starting your BBQ, make sure it is on a stand and not placed directly on the grass.
We advise you to use ‘kettle’ type BBQ’s rather than disposable foil ones – this helps reduce smoke levels.
Barbecue in the centre of the fields - not near homes as smoke can disrupt residents’ enjoyment at home.
Take some water to put out the barbecue once it’s finished.
Make sure barbecues are cool before putting them in the bin.
Dispose of all litter properly, and recycle your rubbish wherever possible.
Keep children supervised around the barbecue at all times. Have a great day!
