Welcome to the February edition of In Your Vicinity 

The longest month of the year and at times appears to have 40 odd days because it seems never ending, but the weather has been very wet and windy at times, but we seem to have escaped most of the snow and ice for another winter. Although we can have snow falling between now and Easter it is now unlikely to hang around for too long. However, the never-ending wet weather have created flooding issues locally, with most rivers overflowing and flooding areas nearby.

We have the start of the Rugby Six Nations starting with the opening round of matches France v Ireland on Friday Feb 2nd, then followed next day with Italy v England and Wales v Scotland. On Feb 11th the Superbowl takes place in Las Vegas, we have the next round of Champion League knock out stage on Feb 13th /14th and on Sunday Feb 25th the League Cup Final at Wembley. The start of the Rugby league season starts on Thursday Feb 15th with the Hull derby, and pm Saturday Feb 17th in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia we the World Heavyweight fight between Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk.

Wednesday Feb 14th is Valentines Day, are you planning a date, a restaurant visit, cooking something special, buying flowers, chocolates or sending a simple message. Pancake Day or Shrove Tuesday is Feb 13th – it’s difficult to find anyone who doesn’t like a pancake, do you have yours with traditional lemon and sugar, or do you replace with syrup, chocolate, cream, strawberries, or do you make up your own finishes.

Many businesses are reporting a slow start to 2024, construction and building appears to be slow and this kicks onto many other sectors. Quite a few decide to have a Dry-January and therefore the hospitality industry always suffer after the Xmas holidays. A lot of people see the awful weather and are happy to just sit and watch tv in their own home and save pennies to help pay for over-spending last month.
