Rain, rain go away..............

No forecasting at Breckland Orchard could have forecast the amount of rain we have had these past few weeks [it seems like months]!

Soft drinks are really seasonal and sales are very reactive to how hot it is out there…………how the rest of the summer will fare is anyones guess.  Let’s face it when its raining hard, you hardly need a hydrating drink – more like a big mug of coffee to warm you up.

Some of the shows and events we attend have also been hit hard.  Suffolk Show Day two was cancelled on the actual day, CLA at Belvoir Castle was cancelled a week out, lots of shows and events have had low visitor numbers due to the lashing rain.

So as the schools prepare to break up this week, as the Olympics start in London 2012 then we’re very much crossing our fingers this end and chanting ‘rain, rain go away……’
