At this present time as we approach another Bank Holiday the weather has certainly changed for the better with plenty of warm sunshine and no rain, there are predictions we are going to have a lovely warm and dry summer, fingers crossed but we have heard all that before, but currently it is a pleasant change compared to the first four months of this year we had received 280ml of rainfall recorded against a reading of 137ml from the first four months 2017.

The wet weather has created quite a few issues on the roads, and I am sure all of us drivers have recently looked on in horror the number of potholes in the roads, many are complaining some minor roads have been like it now for three or four years, but it is a danger for cyclists, motorbikes, and cars looking to swerve and avoid them. I am not sure who has the answer for this problem but I think if we could see regular work attending to repairs, then we would be more content.

Festival season is now in full swing, each weekend there will be quite a few festivals running up and down the country and into Europe, but no Glastonbury this year, locally Wellingborough is holding their Party in the Park on Sunday July 8th at Croyland Park, and many pubs with beer gardens are planning Beer Festivals.

Let us know of about any Village Fetes; School Summer Fairs, Party in the Parks events, or local Carnivals and where possible we will help spread the word.
