The rhyme of St Swithun is:
St. Swithun's day, if thou dost rain,
For forty days it will remain;
St. Swithun's day, if thou be fair,
For forty days 'twill rain na mair.
It’s not all doom and gloom for us though, with fantastic flights to the sun with Jet2.com from £19.99 one way inc. charges, there has never been a better time to book a getaway!
