    Just looked at the forecast – rain & snow!! Will the big boards still be outside?


    • Don’t panic! mainly there’s a possibility of light showers, but some sun in the afternoon. Snow, if there is any, is confined to higher ground in the West Midlands. I bet it’ll be gloriously sunny all day, so er, bring your waterproofs
