With temperatures up in the mid 20s this weekend we dusted off our shorts, donned our sunhats and searched in the shed for that barbie.

Here a a few images of people enjoying the sun in Guildford today… Click on any image to enlarge.

Many Guildfordians head for Millmead Island when the sun appears, and why not?

The sun also encourages our burgeoning cafe culture. Friary Street now has a good range of eateries.

And of course the jewel in the crown of Guildford’s parks, the Castle Grounds. Magnificent as usual.

Swans are nesting by Millmead Lock again this year. Presumably the same pair. How many cygnets will there be?

This 97 year-old Guildfordian has obviously not seen Hitchcock’s film – “The Birds”.
