Fires at Glenny Wood

 

At Glenny Wood camp site, you are welcome to have a camp fire or cooking fire. This is part of our scouting tradition after all. Glenny is in a woodland area, often with lots of young people on site, so please to be extra vigilant when lighting fires.

When having fires please only burn wood you need to, avoid excessive banking up of fire and please don’t bring shredding to burn, as it makes such a mess and does not burn that well!

 

There are only two places for ground fires in Glenny Wood. The Main camp fire and Willow plateau fire area. All other fires must be in Altar Fires.

 

Altar Fires - We have a supply of altar fires available for you to use, stored just up from the loos. When using them please ensure you bring with you buckets / bowls and have them full of water.

When you have finished please ensure the fires are fully out, nothing is left alight.

Most importantly

* any unused wood please return to the wood pile

* the altar fire is returned to the storage area, just up from the loos.

* any ash still in the altar fire is tipped in the metal ash bins.

 

Altar fires on the patio - We now have two fixed altar fires for you to use.

Please ensure the fire buckets are full of water, before you light your fires.

When you have finished please ensure the fires are fully out, nothing is left alight.

Most importantly

* any unused / unburnt wood please return to the wood pile

* all unburnt rubbish including tin foil is removed and taken away.

* any ash still in the altar fire is scraped out into the metal ash bins.

Please leave the area clean and tidy.

 

The Main Camp Fire - The main camp fire below the lodge has fire buckets provided. Before starting please ensure the buckets are full of water and when leaving again please refill.

As above when you have finished please ensure

     * the fires are fully out, nothing is left alight.

     * all unburnt rubbish including tin foil is removed and taken away.

     * all unused wood please return to the wood pile, not left lying around as some seem to think is ok. Please leave the area clean and tidy.

 

Willow Fire Area - When using this area please ensure you bring with you fire buckets / bowls and have them full of water.

When you have finished please ensure

     * the fires are fully out, nothing is left alight.

     * all unburnt rubbish including tin foil is removed and taken away.

     * all unused wood please return to the wood pile, not left lying around as some seem to think is ok. Please leave the area clean and tidy.

 

Wood - There is wood lying around and available at Glenny, so scavenge for wood that has fallen in our woodlands areas. If using wood from the woodpile, please do not remove or use more than you need. Return unused wood to the woodpile at the end of your stay.

 

Please only use wood from the site and no pallet wood to be used.
