My column’s out now: The Gloucestershire drought may be over, but should you reach for the hosepipe?

It’s “Thursday Thoughts” where I post my weekly newspaper column to my blog so you can have a read…

This week my column for the Gloucestershire Gazette is all about the official end to the drought status in Gloucestershire and if we should reach for the hosepipes just yet. To read it, simply click to my Column page.

Let me know what you think. Do drought statuses count in developed countries? Should we be allowed to use what water we like? Or should we treat it as a precious commodity we are lucky to have?

**Look out for tomorrow’s  post, “Friday Fact or Fiction”. This week I’ll be posting the first part of my new short story, ‘The Quiet Life of Megan Quinn.’**
