#Bonfires 2014

As has been blogged on here already, for good and bad, bonfires have been attracting a lot of attention over the last few years. This appears to be, in part, due to combination of the ubiquity of social media and cameras. While a number of high profile news stories are giving a significantly negative impression of bonfires and what gets placed on them, it isn’t clear how representative this is. If the attitudes evidenced in the symbols being included on bonfires are to be addressed, what is needed first is an accurate picture of the bonfires themselves. To try and capture one, I’ve put a survey up on Google docs (you can access it here).

I’m going to embed it below but it may not work on this platform. Please circulate this survey as the more responses the more accurate the picture. I’ll blog an overview of the results on Slugger and publish the raw spreadsheet view Google Docs and Scribd.
