Anti-social bonfires

Who are these people who light bonfires in Ferryside forcing neighbours to close windows, bring in washing and clear away all the muck falling on their property? They don't seem to care a jot about the environment or their neighbours. I guess that some of them are blokes who get a juvenile kick out of lighting fires. Now that the fortnightly collection by the council makes it so easy to dispose of garden waste these bonfires are completely unnecessary. My neighbour may be a community councillor but his habit of burning garden rubbish seems thoughtless and irresponsible to me. This kind of anti-social behaviour seems to be accepted in the village but it definitely spoils my enjoyment of the garden in the summer. Isn't it time that such people showed more consideration for others?
