Roundabout East Dorset Villages August 2019

Dear readers,

What unpredictable weather we are having for summer this year! We have just had 2 cold, grey, wet days announcing the start of the school holidays but now we are expecting highs of 29deg in a couple of days which will feel like 33deg apparently! Although this time tomorrow it will be completely different again no doubt!

It could be a lot worse of course as we found in June this year! We just happened to be having a week’s cycling in Northumberland with friends and ended up at Chillingham which turned out to probably the wettest place in the UK that week!

I hope your summer holiday isn’t as wet as ours was, but if you do get caught out then we have a selection of summer reads on page 31 plus tips on how to stay online whilst you are away on page 20.

Page 6 tells us about the beginnings of the package holidays – one of the 1st in the UK in 1841 was organised by a certain Mr Thomas Cook unsurprisingly!

Alternatively if you are having a staycation instead of a package this year then have a look at our What’s On pages 22 and 24 or our website for lots of local events to amuse the children and other halves.

If you would like more members in your club or society, and/or would like us to publish your news, articles or future events, then simply e-mail the details to: info@roundaboutmags.co.uk.

Finally our ‘Local Business Directory’ on page 34 might be the answer to getting one of those house or garden projects done whilst you are away which you never quite got round to!
