St Georges Day 2010 is almost upon us (it’s Friday, in case you didn’t know) and we’re interested in what you’re planning to do to mark the day.
It was St Georges Day that first led me to discover the Campaign for an English Parliament all those years ago. I was looking for St Georges Day events in and around Telford but there weren’t any. The CEP explained why, quite bluntly – the Brits don’t like England. It sparked my interest and lead to me joining the CEP, becoming an avowed English nationalist, joining the CEP and eventually being voted onto the National Council.
A lot’s changed in that time and one of those things is that Telford & Wrekin Council are finally, after years of nagging, marking St Georges Day. They’re doing it on Saturday rather than St Georges Day but at least it means more people can go. That’s where I’ll be on Saturday with my family.
I have the day booked off work on Friday as I do every year (my unofficial St Georges Day public holiday) and I’m taking my wife to my sister’s pub for a St Georges Day lunch (they’re doing traditional English food and beers all week for St Georges Day). On Sunday we’re planning to visit Blists Hill who are doing special St Georges Day events all weekend, starting Friday.
But enough about me! What are you doing for St Georges Day? If you haven’t got anything planned, check out the St George Holiday website and if you know of any events that they don’t know about, let them know.
