Have your say

The weather has finally turned and it looks like we could have a rather splendid warm and sunny summer.

There are a whole host of activities you can do around the region, even if that sunshine, in typical Brit fashion, turns to rain.

Here is our top ten list of things to do, with hopefully something to suit all tastes. If you have an event coming up then why not let us know? Email editorial@epworthtoday.co.uk.
