Have your say

A SAFETY presentation is being given for people living in homes with thatched roofs at Bishop’s Waltham fire station tomorrow.

In partnership with the National Society of Master Thatchers, firefighters are inviting the public to attend a free thatch fire safety talk at 7pm.

The presentation at the Lower Lane station will look into the major causes, management and control of fires in thatched properties.
