Summer has only just arrived and things are already heating up, with temperatures set to be rising in the next couple of weeks.

The MetOffice is predicting a couple of red-hot weekends. Temperatures on the upcoming Saturday the 10th could reach up to 25° in London, 23° in Manchester, and in the mid to low twenties elsewhere in the country. Next weekend could be much of the same, with mostly dry conditions, light winds, and generally warm temperatures predicted.

All this hot weather and sun means only one thing – it’s the perfect time to host a barbecue. There’ll be no better time to pop your sunnies on, roll out your BBQ, and get your grill face on. Whether it’s with family or friends, we’re encouraging everyone to make the most of this weather and host their first BBQ of the summer!
