With St George's Day being a week away I was Wondering if any of the Lewes Bonfire Societies celebrate this Day in any way? Watching the bonfire boys/girls parading around the town on the 5th I would of thought a celebration for England's patron saint would or should be on every Societies calendar or is it a big No No!

I am not aware of any bonfire societies celebrating this day in Lewes. Chailey bonfire have a St. Georges day Fete behind the village hall and the Scouts, cubs and Beavers do a march through the town on Sunday.

Though I'm an atheist and so don't go in for this saints business, I'm always glad to see anything that recaptures the happiness of being English from the right-wing loonies.

Thanks uckersbarry for your post on sundays march.I believe it's a group called March for England that have organised this event and seems to be well supported.I will most probably join the many others on Sunday and wave my flag for England.
