South London was in bloom last week as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show once again opened its doors to the public. It’s a clear sign that summer’s fast approaching, as many of us now turn attention towards our gardens. Of course, for the truly green-fingered amongst us the hard work started long ago. For everyone else, May marks the start of frantic work to ensure our outdoor spaces are perfectly presented during the warmer months – planting, pruning, and making the inevitable trips to our local garden centre.
As April approaches, the General Election looms ever nearer. Once again political parties, Westminster candidates, and monster raving loonies et al will all be looking to take their policies straight to the people in the coming weeks. And come election night, millions of us will simultaneously be out in force, across the country, to cast our votes.
