We would like to say Happy Kent Day to all our friends in the other Garden of England. Today is the feast day of St. Augustine, the patron saint of Kent, and therefore also the celebration day of the county on the south eastern tip of England.
We’d like to wish everyone in England and all the English around the world a very happy St George’s day today.
Here is a quick Shakespeare quotation that will no doubt be over used today, but none the less is still rousing to the English:
This royal throne of kings, this sceptered isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea.
This is an appeal for help from the Friends of Bedfordshire Society!
We are always trying to make the best of their website, to showcase the best of Bedfordshire, that is why we have added a new feature to show off some of the best views in the county. Our online photo album is free to access and will show the best views across the county.
Currently our album is empty and that is where you come in! We need images from all over the county and we would like the public to start sending us their favourite image to put in the album. All photo’s are gratefully received. Please remember that it is not just the towns, but the villages and the countryside as well. So get snapping and show us your favourite views of this beautiful county.
We have launched a new page to our website where we will be putting up free images for you to enjoy and download. Currently we have our Bedfordshire flag and several posters advertising Bedfordshire Day, which we encourage everyone to display.
If you have any ideas about how we can improve this service or new images we should add, please get in touch with us, we’d love to hear your ideas!
