It seems that the weather has cooled down now after the blistering heatwave we experienced earlier this week. Bearing that in mind, the Evian team got themselves down to popular transport hubs to hand commuters a bottle of water to help keep them cool.

The water brand has pledged to give out 250,000 bottles in total to help with their plight.

The giveaway supports TFL’s ongoing efforts to ‘cool the network’. To date, a number of measures have been introduced including; air conditioned trains on the Metropolitan, Circle, Hammersmith and City and District lines, upgraded station ventilation and portable fans installed in ticket areas.

Environmentalist group Greenpeace hijacked Boris Johnson’s famous ‘Vote Leave’ battle bus for a stunt outside Parliament on Monday.

The bogus claim that cost us Europe – £350m would be freed up to spend on the NHS by leaving the EU was covered up by thousands of stickers containing questions from the public to our new government.

Members of the public could add their questions in person, or submit them online via the Greenpeace website or through social channels using the hashtag #comeclean.


A giant mud volcano was unveiled in London on Saturday (16 July) to launch Persil’s Wild Explorers app.

The volcano held over three tonnes of mud and featured a crater that erupted with ‘molten-lava’ at regular intervals.

The Wild Explorers App was launched in partnership with the Wild Network and provides more than 100 activities for families to do outside in the summer – including making your own mud volcano.

Research revealed that 39% of Brits completely avoid family outdoor time in the summer holidays due to lack of inspiration.

The new app aims to combat this by providing a range of activities that can be done in less than ten minutes and don’t cost the earth.

The campaign is part of the famous ‘Dirt Is Good’ campaign – an ongoing commitment from Persil to encourage more children to get outside and enjoy outdoor play.



In order to jump on the latest PokemonGo craze, Bidvine launched a new service that will enable struggling Pokemon Go players to hire other Trainers to play for them.

The Pokémon Trainer Club, uses Bidvine to connect new and struggling players with Trainers who can operate your phone on your behalf whilst they are dogwalking for example.

Might be worth a try if like me all you seem to catch are Pidgeys and Rattatas!
