Be aware of advice and rules about bonfires.
Cripley Meadow is in the flood plain, and, every few years, lower lying parts of the site go under water. This news item includes health and safety information specific to our site and flooding. Fortunately, we have not suffered from sewage polluting the site, but some of the advice in this article is worth bearing in mind.
