Australia Summer and Fire

In Australia, it is summer. It’s funny for people in the northern hemisphere to imagine Christmas celebrations lying on the beach and with heat… Who is that man surfing with a strange red suit? Santa Claus? Yes, everything is different in Australia. A big fantastic country full of friendly people!

However, every summer they have to face the terrible problem of wildfires. This year is being particularly catastrophic since fire has hit over 400,000 hectares.

Even Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, has visited the firefighters who work in the state of Victoria, where wildfires has ravaged this week over 400,000 hectares, according to ABC radio.

John Howard has warned the firefighters and residents of this region in the Northeastern about the summer. It will be “very long”, because this year fires have started earlier than in previous seasons.

Howard, who will also visit today the state of Tasmania, severely affected by the fires, has also said that his administration intends to send more security forces to Victoria, where more than 3,000 firefighters and soldiers are trying to control the fire. Also, another fire that advances through the Gippsland region, is leaving the city of Melbourne covered by thick smoke.

The president noted that the federal government used to cover 50% of the cost of damages caused by natural disasters, but in special circumstances such as the present, they will pay 75%.

Fires are a global catastrophe, one more left by the terrible 2012, full of crisis and natural disasters. Since 2013 has just started, we hope that Australia can solve this tragic problem soon and people can have a peaceful summer enjoying their beautiful landscape and modern cities. Go on! You are strong people and you know how collaborate together to get what you want. Yes, go on!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
