Suffolk and Shetland Days

Published / by Admin / Leave a Comment

Waking up this morning to films of Stonehenge reminds us that today is the summer solstice, midsummers day, Suffolk Day and Shetland Day.

Suffolk celebrate their country on this day, being the first county to see the summer sunrise, as they are the most easterly county.

Shetland also celebrate the date as it the longest day, which, given that they are the northern most county, gives the a very long day compared to the mainland (more than 19 hours!)

Happy Shropshire Day

This short post is just to wish all our friends in Shropshire a very happy Shropshire Day today. We hope you have a great day!

Shropshire Day is celebrated on the feast day of St. Milburga was the abbess of Wenlock Priory in Shropshire. She died on this day 727. She was said to have the power to control birds, who wouldn’t eat the local crops when she asked them to!
