No disposable barbecues

Updated 29th May 2020

Disposable barbecues pose a particular fire risk, so we urge people not to use them anywhere in the forest.

Preventing fires from starting in precious outdoor spaces like the New Forest requires everyone to play their part, we would like to remind anyone coming to the New Forest that BBQs or fires are strictly not allowed anywhere on the Forest at this time.
