If you are planning a barbecue for the upcoming Bank Holiday weekend please see the Bank Holiday Barbecue Food Safety Advice.
Apart from the Food Safety Advice contained in the above link please also ensure you take enough precautions to avoid injuries, fires burning out of control, and problems caused by excessive consumption of alcohol. Make sure you supply plenty of soft drinks and water for your guests to drink as well as alcoholic beverages.
Final piece of advice – it is a very good idea to warn your neighbours if there is any danger of loud music being played. This goes for afternoon barbecues and parties as well as late night events.
