It is St George’s Day

image But does anybody care? He is the patron saint of England but I doubt if many will be celebrating his special day. The red crosses only seem to come out when England are playing football . Then people go mad with flags on cars, on houses and pubs – everywhere!
image There was a time when every child in England could have told you the story about how St George slayed a dragon to save the life of a beautiful Arabian princess.

These days, I don’t suppose many would have a clue what you were talking about.

Ask any child in Bigastro about the patron saint of the town – that would be a different story.
