Too early in the year almost guaranteed to rain - but that's nothing new.

In recent years it's actually seemed to be quite dry in the spring, so all the talk is of the coming drought, then it turns out to rain for the next 6 months :)

But 4/5 May is a bank holiday weekend, so rain is probable regardless :(

After hours of lobbying, badgering, haranguing....... 
 and a couple of threats of violence against my person  <*< 

- I've been persuaded that May 4, 5 is the better option! 




       What say you chaps?
