Wimbledon

Wimbledon

Wimbledon fortnight starts today.

That means we are in for two weeks of hoping Andy Murray can win another Grand Slam, only to fall at the hands of the tennis machine known as Novak Djokavic!

It’s also a time when children across the country dust off the tennis rackets that have been sitting in the garage for the last 12 months, only to discover there are very places where you can actually play the game these days (we are old enough to remember when municipal courts were not overgrown or covered in glass).

One of the misnomers about fish and chips is that it is unhealthy, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.
