Preview Corner: What’s HOT in June

It was Gertrude Jekyll, wasn’t it, who said ‘What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade?’ Yes it was. And I mention Ms Jekyll because, of course, she was one of our Prime Minister’s ‘dream dinner party guests,’ as recently reported. And I like to think that it was with these wise words in mind that Mrs May chose June as her month to go to the country. But while we wait for the result, there’s a lot going on down here to distract us. And here’s Toby Sargent, our man with the donkey-brown ‘Farah Flex’ trousers (with self-adjusting waistband) and the 25% off voucher for an all-you-can-eat Mexican buffet, to tell you about it.
