We want you to enjoy the sunshine, but please remember to be safe in the sun...

  • Cover up your skin
    Throw on a long sleeved shirt or top that ideally has a collar and a sarong or long shorts to banish those burning rays.

  • Slap on the suncream
    Apply generous amounts of water resistant suncream of at least SPF30 and above, to clean, dry skin before going out in the sun.

  • Wear a hat or cap
    Whether its cowboy hat, a floppy hat or baseball cap, all are good at keeping the heat off your head, face neck and ears.

  • Slip on the shades
    Don’t forget, your eyes need protection too!

  • Chill out in the shade
    When the sun’s rays are strongest between 11am and 3pm, reach for the shade and sit under a tree, building or umbrella.
