With most of us enjoying the wall-to-wall sunshine this Bank holiday, the last thing we've been praying for is rain. For Raynne Manning ,the showers can't come quickly enough.

His family have been growing fruit in Cambridge shire for the last 40 years.They've not had rain for  seven weeks now. But with no lakes or rivers to water his trees, he is in danger of losing his crops.

"We need ,really really need some rain . We've got food crops due to the wonderful sunny weather,high pollination,the bees have worked well.But now we are suffering from the draught."

The Environment Agency say that natioanlly we've had 13% less rain in the last three months when compared to the yearly average. While forward draught planning means no hose pipe bans for now. It has left the river levels low in the Southwest, Central, and eastern England. And that means that farmers could be forced to reduce the amount of water they take out to irrigate their crops.

Here in St. Thames, the river levels have been falling over the last few weeks. Since after hearing Cambridge shire, they saw the lowest rainfall in March since 1929 with only 3.5 millimeters.While there are still plenty of water for us to enjoy the warm weather,they are all worries about what it means for farmers and also the wildlife living underneath the water.

Most reserviors are at normal levels but water companys are grueling out the possibilities for the restrictions if the dry weather continues. And that means more of us must use our water wisely.

We use water buckets to conserve whatever / water / there is in the garden and  we don't use holes pipe in the garden so that say...help towards the problem.

In this country,it doesn't seem that stella is too long,so we think before long we gonna hava a lot of rain.

The garden ,I've just given a little drop of water so I left out the other day but not the hose pipe, because I don't really want to use too much just enough to keep them alive.

Over the coming weeks ,there is no doubt that many eyes will be on the skies.A shortage of rain may have meant a bumper Easter break. But a few showers are needed if we don't want to pay for it this summer.
