Announcer/MVO

You've probably never thought about it, but smoke from woodheaters can be a major source of air pollution at this time of year.

There are some simple ways to help reduce your heater's impact on the environment. Always burn small, aged logs of dry hardwood. Never burn treated wood or household rubbish. And regularly check your chimney for smoke.

By reducing smoke from woodheaters we can all stay warm and breathe easy.
