Well, we all enjoy an Indian Summer but the hotter spells this year have been more akin to Flaming June at times. The upside is glorious coffee mornings like today’s at the Astro Café, break times with children scattered across the park land and yet I do hear concerned rumblings from those anxious about water tables.
Wednesday served up a spectacular example of the upside both at break time and then again during matches. There were break time groups all the way down by the lakes (pretty low themselves) and to the corners of the south field and after lunch the top field was picture perfect bedecked in flags as parents watched their children exert themselves in warm temperatures. I was there in my trousers and tie and jealous of the many who were in shorts and flip flops – probably not going to be the same in January.
Today marks just about a quarter of this term done – good job we haven’t wasted any of it and once again this week's newsletter and associated news feeds will give you some insight into what has been going on.
A reminder that the Autumn Fayre is just a week away and I hope it is firmly in your family diary as well as in advance preparing any items you need to. I notice there is a terrific opportunity to bid for a week in a 10-bed Cornish seaside cottage!
We are heading to a family wedding on the south coast this weekend and so I’m very grateful for the Indian Summer – sun cream and sunglasses packed!
