We've had plenty of sun this week, and despite the colder temperatures it has been the perfect outdoor setting for returning to our local pubs and attractions.

Cooler temperatures will remain over the next few days, but the good news is there is no rain forecast for the next few days, and Friday will be bright and sunny with very little cloud cover.

Looking ahead to the weekend, the Met Office has forecast cloudier days on Saturday and Sunday, but it will still stay dry.

Maximum temperatures will remain at a steady 12°C, and the weekend sun will also bring a high pollen count with it until Tuesday.

We can probably expect much busier scenes in the town centre this weekend, as the resort's attractions, gyms, shops and outdoor seating at pubs, cafes and restaurants were able to reopen after lockdown on Monday April 12.
