Yorkshire Day at Redcar on Thursday 1st August 2013
This year it will be read by Charles Dickens (Chris Foote-Wood, right) in modern English but there is also a mighty Viking (John Curr, below) who will read it in Old Norse. Silk white roses will be on sale at £1 and all proceeds go to Redcar Lifeboat.
The event will also be attended by His Worship the Mayor of Redcar and Cleveland, Councillor Vic Jeffries.
There will be stalls and attractions for all.
We’re part of the ring of roses around Yorkshire
There will be a ring of roses around Yorkshire on Thursday. The Yorkshire Ridings Society has sent out well over a hundred Yorkshire white rose flags in an attempt to ensure they are flown on Thursday in every settlement on or close to the real Yorkshire boundaries.
If you have a Yorkshire Flag please fly it on Thursday.
Thanks to all those people who have agreed to take part in the Ring of Roses.
Yorkshire Declaration of Integrity 2013
"I, Chris Foote-Wood standing here in the North Riding of Yorkshire declare:
That Yorkshire is three Ridings and the City of York, with these Boundaries of 1138 years standing;
That the address of all places in these Ridings is Yorkshire;
That all persons born therein or resident therein and loyal to the Ridings are Yorkshiremen and women;
That any person or corporate body which deliberately ignores or denies the aforementioned shall forfeit all claim to Yorkshire status.
These declarations made this Yorkshire Day 2013.
Yorkshire forever, God Save the Queen!”
