This Halloween breaks two records

1)  A temperature of 23.6C (74.3F) was recorded in Gravesend, Kent and Kew Gardens, Greater London, surpassing the previous record of 20.0C.

Other parts of the south of England and the north coasts of Wales and Norfolk also broke the 20C mark.

It was warm enough for us to have lunch on our terrace.

2) This evening, we had a record number of visits to our house. The doorbell went 16 times and no less than 70 kids came trick or treating.

This year broke the previous record set two years ago of 14 visits involving 51 children.

Fortunately we had lots of Quality Street sweets in a special bucket, but I fear that next year “We’re gonna need a bigger bucket!”
