Phew - what a scorcher (to use a tabloid newspaper headline)!
We had temperatures over 20c nearly every day until near the end of the month. Several days were over 25c and we got to 30c on the 21st July. There was a dry spell lasting over 2 weeks.
Is that it for the summer? August is usually very wet here.               John Dobson.

Guinea Pigs Available

Could you give a home to a guinea pig, or 12, !!! or do you know of anyone who could? They will be ready at the end of August...Took in 4 rescue pigs I was assured were all girls...I beg to differ.

Fundraiser for NHS on The Green

There was enough room in the shade of the village oak tree for everyone to sit and enjoy a meal in a box provided by the W.I. yesterday. It was a lovely to get together and have a chat again, thanks especially to the Cadent workers who drilled their trenches further away.
