Roundabout Verwood & Three Legged Cross June 2019

Dear readers,

A month from today as I write, it will be Midsummer’s Day so the nights will be drawing in very shortly! So is it just me or has it been a colder and drier spring than usual – windier too?

We had a pleasant country walk around Breamore a week or so ago and noticed that the fields were already pretty dry and cracked. So no doubt all you gardeners will be hoping for a decent amount of rain very shortly – but before the school holidays please!

This issue’s cover reminds us just how lovely the summer dawn in June can be and it also seems to have been the most important month in the calendar for thousands of years in the UK. The 5000 year old Neolithic monument of Stonehenge is the obvious midsummer icon especially on Midsummer’s Day! But June was also very important for the Romans, Anglo Saxons and also the month for many other momentus occasions. Signing of the Magna Carta, Battle of Waterloo, the Queen’s Coronation and D-Day to name but a few. The article on page 40 tells us more.

Even if June remains dry we can always look forward to a wet early July – because it’s Wimbledon week of course and page 32 gives us a few facts and figures with a fascinating potted history of tennis.
