It was a glorious holiday weekend in Hertfordshire.
Families and friends have gone to enjoy some of the county’s beautiful parks, green spaces and pub gardens.
Some have chosen to cool off with a visit to the county’s water parks and pools, boat trips along the river, or a refreshing ice cream.
Hertfordshire also looks picturesque with flowers blooming and the sun has attracted a wide variety of wildlife as well.
Today (Wednesday June 2) is considered one of the hottest days of the year with temperatures reaching around 26 degrees.
Warm weather is expected to stay according to the Met Office with temperatures expected to stay around the mid-1920s.
The RSPCA has advised pet owners to keep their four-legged and feathered friends cool and comfortable – including access to shade, cool drinking water, safe sunscreen for pets and the use of an ice pack or a bottle of frozen water wrapped in a tea towel. , or damp towels that animals can lie on.
When walking dogs, keep in mind that sidewalks can get very hot. If the path is too hot to touch with your hand, it is too hot for a dog’s paws.
While it can be tempting to jump into rivers and lakes to cool off, people should resist the urge as the water is often deeper than you might think, and the water’s low temperatures could still be low enough to cause a cold water shock.
