Keep Cool!

There has been a Level 3 warning regarding the heatwave that is set to continue for approximately a week. During this time the temperatures are likely to rise to around 30 degrees during the day and as such the following advice is important to follow:- - Keep curtains and blinds closed where you have sun facing rooms - Drink plenty of fluids - this can be hot and cold drinks (non alcoholic) - Keep out of the sun between 12 noon and 3pm - Wear light natural fabrics rather than synthetic fabrics (cotton rather than nylon) - Use a damp cloth or towel to help you stay cool (wipe yourself down with it) - Run your wrists under cool water to help reduce body heat - If you wish to go outdoors then stay in the shade - Use a fan if you have one
