Welcome to the October edition of IN YOUR VICINITY.

At the moment the weather has been fantastic for this time of year, however, the gardens and ground conditions could really do with some rainfall, lawns are starting to look bare and yellow. Regular temperatures of mid-20’s has been a good extension to the summer, and in general, most September’s have recently been good for dry and warm conditions.

The collapse of Thomas Cook has just hit the news, having horrific impacts onto people currently away needing to get home, and people having planned trips seeing them totally cancelled. There will be an impact on job losses, plus also spare a thought to any businesses who were suppliers of Thomas Cook and are owed a lot of money, the likelihood is smaller businesses will also go to the wall. There will be questions asked how it has happened that another established name has collapsed, but ultimately it will come down to the business not being competitive and overheads too high.
