“Summer time and the living is easy, fish are jumping and the cotton is high”, the immortal words of summer. Or as the August bank holiday is upon us you could say something a little more like “Summer time and the traffic is heavy, kids are screaming and the end is nigh”.

So as the last few days of the holidays approach would you put yourself in any of the following categories, if so we have events or sites in the region for you this bank holiday weekend:

  • Doting grandparents who want to spend quality time with their grandchildren
  • Parent who has kids and you are running out of things to do with them after 5 weeks
  • Live locally to an RSPB reserve and didn’t realise that they did events
  • Want to do a bit of shopping for a present for a loved one
