Hot winds flowing from the continent are set to see thermometers soaring to the high 20s Celcius on Friday, even if skies are overcast, with a very humid night to follow.

In March 2014, we started a conversation with local people on how they would like co-designed, person centred commissioning of health services to be different.
Over 100 members of our local community came together to start the conversation, sharing their thoughts and experiences from different angles, reflecting on stories and experiences of care; talking about their feelings relating to current and desired experiences of keeping well and addressing improvement challenges.
We are holding our next board meeting from 1.30pm to 4.30pm on Tuesday 8 July.
Members of the public are invited to attend the meeting being held at Parklands, Hinckley Golf Club, Leicester Road, Hinckley, Leicestershire LE10 3DR.

Older people, relatives and carers across West Leicestershire are being offered advice on taking positive action to stay steady on their feet and prevent falls during National Falls Awareness Week (16-23 June).
The CCG is marking national Carers Week (9-14 June) by encouraging young carers not to care in silence and isolation but to seek support if they care for a relative and haven’t told anyone officially.
A young carer is someone aged 18 or under who helps look after a relative who has a condition such as a disability, illness, mental health condition, or a drug or alcohol problem.
