Wednesday's Peninsula Breakfast Briefing
By The Editor
21st Sep 2022 | Local News
Wednesday's wonderful fact
The most popular English grapes are: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Bacchus, Pinot Meunier and Ortega. Suffolk vineyards, including at Shotley, are proving successful in producing its own wine.
Early mist and fog patches soon clearing to leave a dry day with variable amounts of cloud and some sunny spells. Feeling warmer again compared to Tuesday, with light winds. Maximum Temperature 21C.
Joke of the day:
What did the grape say when the elephant stood on it?
Nothing, it just let out a little wine.
Did you groan? (send us your own favourite joke).
