Festive fireplace plans?
It’s that time of the year where you will be getting ready to deck the halls with boughes of holly. There is every chance you will want to dress your fireplace with some seasonal flourishes, in the traditional way. Be warned, this could prove to be a fire risk!
There’ll be much mistletoeing and hearts will be glowing, there’ll certainly be parties for hosting and marshmallows for toasting. Can you tell that we have started playing Christmas tunes? The mini mince pies are back and no doubt you’ll have your tree up now.
This year make sure you aren’t creating your own fire hazard. Your stove or fireplace can pump out some heat that could lead to decorations catching light.
The instructions for your stove will have clear guidance on safe distances to combustible materials, make sure you stick to them.
