At Savoo we have rounded up our favourite outdoor pools from across the country, so wherever you are you can enjoy this traditional British pastime.1) Stonehaven Open Air Pool: AberdeenshireLet's be honest, Scotland isn't exactly known for its Mediterranean climate.

It's the longest day of the year this weekend, so what better way to celebrate the evening sunshine than with a summer picnic with your colleagues; add jugs of Pimm's and party games into the mix and you have the perfect opportunity for team bonding on a budget (or at least an afternoon of getting drunk in the sun). With company expenses in mind, here are Savoo's top tips for planning an affordable picnic while the weather is still good.
World Cup fever is spreading like wildfire across the country (particularly now pubs and bars have been given the go-ahead to open until 1am when England are playing late!) If you aren't sure where to watch the big game, read on for Savoo's round-up of the best World Cup Deals in London and throughout the UK; if you can't get to Brazil, bring the carnival spirit here instead.
My rugby match was cancelled last weekend but we did undertake a forwards training session which basically involved a bunch of blokes standing around in a recreational park close to the M25 motorway taking it in turns to knock each other to the ground.
