BAGMA members asked to support sky lantern ban

BAGMA members are being urged to support a campaign to ban the release of sky lanterns.

The National Farmers Union (NFU) has launched the campaign; sky lanterns are often the cause of large scale fires on farmland, agricultural buildings and animal food supplies. They can also injure or kill farm animals and wildlife.

BAGMA members are urged to email their local authority to ask them to introduce the ban.
