BBQs not permitted in Buckingham’s Parks

As the warmer weather returns, the Town Council is reminding visitors to its parks that barbecues are not permitted in Buckingham’s parks and green spaces. Unfortunately, in recent years, our team and the local Fire Brigade have had to deal with the damage that resulted from discarded or uncontrolled BBQs.

Barbecues have a negative impact on the local and global environment as they emit greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and regularly leave behind scorched patches of burned grass that take months to recover and damage our beautiful surroundings.

Everyone who visits Buckingham’s parks and green spaces should also make sure they bag up their rubbish and take it home where it can be recycled or disposed of responsibly. This will help to reduce litter and protect wild animals who can become trapped and entangled in dumped items.

We want everyone to enjoy themselves during the warmer months in our parks and greenspaces. So please, pack up a picnic and fill up a cool-bag for a day in the park – but please dispose of your litter properly and leave your barbecues at home.
