SUN-WORSHIPPERS flocked to parks and riversides this week as the Vale got an early taste of summer.

Temperatures soared to 21 degrees celsius, almost ten degrees above the average for this time of year, as a wedge of high pressure brought in warm air and blue skies from the continent.

Both Abbey Parks in Evesham and Pershore were packed with people enjoying picnics and the River Avon was full of boaters making the most of the conditions which were more like July than March.

But despite a glorious week things are set to change this weekend with cooler and cloudier conditions sinking down from the north of the country and temperatures will be back down to a more normal 12 degrees celsius.
