This week we seem to have been having a mini heat wave, so does that mean summer is here. The schools have now broken up for the long break, and the hay has been cut and gathered while the sun shines. Please remember if the sun continues to Slip on a shirt, slap on a hat and slop on the sun cream, and drink extra. If you have an elderly neighbour please keep an eye on them as this weather can de hydrate people quickly, not only the elderly but everyone. Keep safe over the summer and enjoy.
