The temperature has been in the late 30’s in Nyon over the past few days and looks set to stay like this until Wednesday. The outdoor pool and the lake have been the place to be to cool off!
Despite the soaring temperatures, the webmaster at Living in Nyon has been inside his office, tweaking the look of the site and making it much easier to read on a mobile phone. He has also introduced a weekly update feature, just register your name on the right hand side and you will receive a summary of the posts of that week (in addition to the quarterly newsletter). Alternatively, “like” us on Facebook to keep updated. We are now on Instagram too!
The Living in Nyon column in English continues in La Côte newspaper throughout the summer, it is published on a Thursday and usually can be found on the back page of the first section. Even if you can’t read much French, it’s still worth picking up a copy of the paper, subscribing to it and reading it online to find out what’s happening in your village or town. The comprehensive “agenda” section in the paper is worth looking at, and the flash updates sent to your smart phone give you the latest news.
