Our studio is still temporarily out of action as we upgrade a few things but thankfully the quiet weather means there really isn't a lot to update you on... although we do have Labour Weekend fast approaching, so here's the latest for that and the following week too.

Filed in:

We have no weather video today as we're making upgrades to our studio, equipment and camera. It's one of those things where you make small change here and it affects something else down the line! The positive is that we're working on improving the quality of our videos and looking to expand the content we make, but it means today (and maybe Thursday) we don't have a video.
