HELLO: What a glorious weekend. I hope that you all got the chance to go out and enjoy the warm sun. Spring is certainly on its way with many of the trees sprouting their new green leaves – the old country folks always said that if the Oak came into leaf before the Ash then there would only be a splash ie little rain in the summer – so have a look at the trees around you and see if this forecast holds true this year. Let’s hope it keeps fine for us to all enjoy the Easter break this weekend.
