BAN disposable BBQ’s

Enough is enough...... it’s time to ban disposable bbq’s in the open countryside and moorland.  I live in the Peak District and for as long as I can remember people bringing disposable bbq’s out into the open countryside and moorland has led to devastating fires. 
Two years ago we had the huge Saddleworth moor fire, not only was this one of the largest English wild fire in living memory but it cost the economy millions.  We are still only in May, however everyday I hear of further moor fires, and the majority look to have been started from disposable bbq’s, in fact just this weekend there have been fires at Chatsworth, Bamford Edge and Barlow/Curbar Edge.

These fires take long periods of time to bring under control and extinguish completely, as with moor fires once a part of the fire has been extinguished the fire can travel under ground and reignite in a new location.  They bring devastating effects to the local area, destroy wildlife, kill huge areas of natural beauty and not to mention our lives at risk, all of which is completely unnecessary and avoidable.

Please sign this petition and lets get the use of disposable bbq’s in open countryside and moorland banned and made illegal.
