St.George’s Day

Civic St. George's Day Flag Raising 2011


As St. George’s Day falls during the Easter Holiday weekend this year the Civic Flag Raising ceremony took place on Thursday 21st April. I attended along with the Mayor of Bury the Deputy Mayor, Mr Ivan Lewis the MP for Bury South, Cllr Bob Bibby the Council Leader and Cllr Yvonne Creswell the Deputy Leader. Prior to the flag raising ceremony the Rector of Bury Reverend John Findon gave a brief talk on the history of St. George and said prayers.

This morning St George’s day itself I took CeeCee up Holcombe Hill where Councillor Barry Theckston and Bryan Farlow had arranged to ensure the Cross of St. George was flying proudly from the top of Peel Tower.
