>> The Value of St George
Ahead of St Georges Day on Sunday, here are a couple of sites which are campaigning to make England’s patron saint’s day a public holiday. Survey results reveal that four-fifths of people would actively celebrate St Georges Day if the government declared a national holiday (no surprise there then!).
You’ll find a more information about the campaign and a list of St Georges Day events.
