Ruishton Weather
Highest ever recorded temp. 35 degrees C On 13th August 2022
Ruishton has it's own Weather Station site ITAUNT13. The weather monitor is based in the village and measures a number of weather related values, such as temperatures, dew point, wind etc.
This is a great site and I'm sure it will be a great place to get data for a school science project.

The first stage was the Issues and Options document. The document looks at key issues for our area and suggests ways we can address these.  The issues we are looking at include how to plan for the places and spaces we live and work in; community services, shops, transport and infrastructure; our wildlife and landscapes; and the climate emergency.
