British Summer is here…

The covers are off and Wimbledon is underway, a number of summer sports have begun and its National Picnic Month!

National Picnic Month aims to provide people with ideal opportunity to get together over a picnic and discuss advice, tips, recipes and enjoy the great British outdoors!

Picnicking is one of the UK’s most enjoyable summer traditions, and is a great way of taking advantage of any open spaces in your local area over the warmer months of the year.

After you’ve finished eating, there is also the opportunity to take advantage of being ouydoors and engage the whole family in games, sports, or a walk around the park. Find new ways to get active this summer by trying new sports like kayaking, windsurfing, volleyball or even rock climbing!

BUT dont forget to use your MacWet Gloves!
