The weatherman assures us that Summer is just about to start so we can all look forward to a few days of sunshine, mosquito bites and flying ants as we celebrate Bastille Day.
Bastille Day just happens to coincide with Shark Awareness Day. Don’t be alarmed though, you’re no more likely to be eaten by a shark on this day of the year than any other. In fact, you’re massively unlikely to be eaten by a shark at any time.
