Bedfordshire Day is fast approaching and what better way to celebrate than to indulge in some of the finest local treats that Bedfordshire has to offer. With lockdown stopping the usual gatherings, social media is more important than ever. With that in mind we are asking for everyone to use the hashtag #getYourClangersOut to show us your kitchen creations
With a few days left to get to the shops, you still have time to get your ingredients to make your own Bedfordshire Clangers or Chocolate Toothpaste Tart. All the information that you need is at hand.
You can download the recipe for both as well as information about our local fruit variety, the Warden Pair, on our website. Or you can search YouTube for loads of videos about our famous dish. While your on YouTube, look out for local band CC Smugglers singing their short ode to the clanger in their unique style.
The weather has turned cold, leaves have fallen off the trees, the nights have well and truly drawn in. Naturally, our thoughts are turning to Christmas, but before we get to that we have one more celebration in mind: Bedfordshire Day!
Yes, it’s that time of year again where we ask you to think about what makes Bedfordshire so great and celebrate it with your nearest and dearest. This year, is obviously going to be different in many ways. Due to the current situation there will be no pub celebrations, no markets and no colourful flags decorating our fair county. Or will there?
Whilst we can not go out, due to lockdown, that doesn’t stop us all enjoying Bedfordshire Day at home. We are asking you to join in the online party this year by posting a photo of your lockdown Bedfordshire Day.
Use the hashtag #BedsDay2020 or #BedfordshireDay we would like to see as many photos of our county flag as possible. Don’t have a flag? That’s OK, we’ve got you covered, with printable in various sizes. We also have blank flags for colouring in. Something to keep the young one’s busy for five minutes. Again, send us your photo’s of your colouring skills!
Lockdown means that we have to keep our distance this year, but we’re all allowed out for a bit of exercise. So send us some photos of the best spot on your run, or your dog walk, or country ramble.
We may be apart this year, but we’re not alone. Let’s all celebrate our beautiful county together this Bedfordshire Day! #BedsDay2020
