Although the official jubilee weekend (and most of the summer so far) may have been a bit of a washout to say the least, how many of you have bought something with a union jack on and how many still have bunting in their street/garden/local pub. As much as I hate to admit it, our little community still has some very sad, wet looking union jacks clinging to the hedge and along the lane. But actually, none of us are quite ready to take it down….be it because of a new-found patriotism, or that the fact the Olympics are still to come and we are still hopeful of a few medals from Team GB, nobody is really quite sure. But the fact is, every part of the country has embraced the patriotic bug to at least some extent.
