It’s a melting hot weekend ahead – the kind that makes you want to stay in doors out of the heat. Or pitch a tent by a river somewhere and fish.
We’ve got plenty of ideas for things to do that will keep you cool – walks in shady parks, pools to splash about in, rivers to mess about on and cool delights to whet your appetite.
This week we’ve put together a Beat the Heat Special with lots of hints and tips about dealing with the first hot spell summer – a once in 5-10 year December heatwave, according to the Bureau of Meterology.
It’s come at a good time for Christmas lights – the evenings will still be warm, so a great chance to get out and have a look at all the twinkles. Check out our map to find ones near you.
There’s a few Christmas carols on, so break out your best singing voice and head to a park near you. To find out more, have a look at our What’s On section.
Ho, ho, ho.
