The Environment Agency has declared a drought including here in Hertfordshire . So please be mindful with your water use, be sparing and avoid watering plants in the heat of the day.

Whilst the hot weather continues avoid over heating and heatstroke. Some simple actions that can help in these current hot days include

1. Keep curtains on windows exposed to the sun closed while the temperature outside is higher than it is inside.
2. Stay out of the sun (especially between 11am-3pm).
3. Drink lots of water, stay in the shade, wear hats, sunscreen, thin scarves, and light clothing if going outside.

And keep an eye on your neighbours, especially those who live alone, are elderly or vulnerable.
