The hot weather saw plenty of families seeking some respite at the splashpad near Hopscotch in Tamworth’s Bicentennial Park during the week.
While temperatures soared into the 40’s, at least this was one way the kids – and mum and dad too – could keep their cool while having a good time.
As far as the weather is concerned, there might be some relief on the way for the region towards the end of this week, and certainly some cooler nights are on the forecast, but don’t expect the hot weather to go too far.
The Cancer Council is also reminding parents to make sure they observe the slip, slop, slap message while having fun in the sun with their children.
