I have spoken to the Area Parks manager who has asked me to remind everyone that cooking fires and barbecues are not allowed on the Queslett Nature Reserve.
Although there has been some rain recently a lot of the reserve is still dry and there is a fire hazard in the making if fires are lit on the reserve for any reason.
We should also remember that the reserve is an old in fill site and gas may still be underground and seeping out.
Park Rangers are now aware some cooking fires have been lit recently and will speak to anyone attempting to cook on the reserve explaining the problems.
