Institute of Water – Weather and the Water Sector

1st December 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 17th December 2020 @ 2:00 pm

The sun has got his hat on, hip hip hip hooray… lets face it, in the UK we are pretty much obsessed with the weather.

It’s always too hot, too cold, too wet and too dry – but the one thing it does provide is an endless source of conversation!
