It's been a funny old month so far, from scorching heat to hail in the space of 24 hours, the world's first hotel for houseplants opened in London (no mention of one setting up 'root' in Wetherby though) and more roadworks in the area than charity shops!
We have picked the top stories and features from Handpicked Wetherby to take you straight into your weekend with a smile...

Simba idolises his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub's arrival. Scar, Mufasa's brother—and former heir to the throne—has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba's exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
