Will the Winter Solstice see the end of those long, dark days?

December 21st. The day the Sun delivers the fewest hours of sunlight of the year. In short, by the end of today we will have turned the corner and from hereon in, it’s a case of less darkness and more light. In short, the Winter Solstice. And with it comes an obvious metaphor as Coventry…

A road less travelled, last stop Loughborough…
