Make sure Santa can fit down your chimney this Christmas

Father Christmas has teamed up with Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service to urge residents to make sure their chimneys have been swept in time for Christmas.

Last winter (October 2011 to April 2012), firefighters attended 62 chimney fires across the county. And now that the weather is getting cold this year, there have been several chimney fires already this December, including two last night (see www.cambsfire.gov.uk for further details).

By sweeping the chimney you will help to ensure that your family is safe from fire this Christmas…and of course, that Santa is able to fit down the chimney easily to deliver presents.
