12th September 2014

1PTemperatures have soared this week reaching 350 C. in many areas. Very little or no breeze has added to the discomfort making it one of the hottest early Septembers for many years.

This is expected to continue. Advice from the health centre is to always wear a hat when out in the hot sun and drink plenty of fluids, (non-alcoholic ones)

Keep your cool!  Penny
