Stay cool


Well, the sun is lovely but … we still have to be careful in the heat. Here are our tips for keeping as cool as a cucumber.

Close windows which face the sun closed during the day, open them at night, if it is safe, when the temperature has dropped and cool air can flood the flat or house

Keep out of the sun between 11am and 3pm and wear loose-fitting cotton clothes

Take cool baths or showers, and splash yourself with cool water during the day.

Make sure you drink plenty of fluids but avoid alcohol. Water, milk, tea and coffee are all good options

If you have to step out in the heat, make sure you walk in the shade, slap on sunscreen and wear a hat and light scarf

It’s always a good idea to check up on friends and relatives who might be less able to look after themselves.
