04 May A. Awareness of Sky Lanterns & Balloons
Gillingham Town Council has recently adopted a policy on the release of balloons and sky lanterns similar to a policy already adopted by Dorset Councils Partnership.
This policy hopes to raise awareness of the potential harmful consequences that can occur when balloons and lanterns are released and to reduce the amount of litter in our countryside and along our shoreline.
