What she said.
Today's the Big Lunch at the Hamptons and it's an opportunity to bring a picnic and sit around in the sun with friends and neighbours while the kids play on the bouncy castle, fairground rides or 'spot the blogger'. It is just one part of Sutton's much larger "Take Part, Take Pride" programme, details of which can be found here, and this is my early notice for the 28th July when there's a bat walk in the Hamptons.
Wednesday 28 July
Bat Walk - 9.15pm
Meet at the top of the viewpoint
in the Hamptons, off Green lane,
Using specialist equipment, come and
learn about the different species of bat
in this part of Sutton; their behaviour, life
cycles and identification
Suggested £3 donation
Advance booking advisable, contact
Made paths, short grass and wooden
boardwalk should be suitable for almost all
Tomorrow is the big Move It At The Manor event in Sutton from 12-5pm and another excuse to take advantage of the good weather:
BIKE - Have a go on the cycle obstacle course, get competitive on the cycle challenge, get a safety check and learn basic bike maintenance.
BIKE STUNTS - Watch Team Extreme as they display incredible feats of skill and daring throughout the day.
ENTERTAINMENT - Enjoy some fantastic sport-themed family entertainment. Marvel at the Van Dunk Brothers dry land synchronized swimming display, as well as much, much more.
LIVE MUSIC - Sit back and enjoy the sounds of the live music from local bands coming from the solar powered stage. Radio Jackie will be broadcasting live from the park.
ARTS CORNER - Take part in creating a large willow sculpture with local professional artists from WEAVE collective, using willow, ribbon and other materials.

My (hopefully) useful hint of the day is if you're in any doubt about the weather take a look at http://www.raintoday.co.uk/ which has almost-live rain radar.
