At the Hot Spot

Last weekend was to put it mildly a bit hot.

It’s rare we say it’s too hot at Orton Mere, normally we comment on the cold! But on Saturday it was a shade under 30c and on Sunday it peaked at 31.5c.

Not many people about but those that were spent money on keeping cool. With the chairs in the codgers corner being quite popular as well.

Sunday was a strain with the heat, it was not a day for any strenuous work outside. I did not envy the steam crew on Sunday at all.

Not a lot to say otherwise, except that we were also competing with the heritage weekend in the city centre and it’s not easy to compete with free!

Hopefully a bit cooler this coming weekend.
