Today the Stone Cross St George Association demonstrated that the English can celebrate St George's day with a peaceful and very enjoyable procession. Billed as controversial, and distanced from by Sandwell Council, funding was provided by businessman Chris Kelly and hence the opportunity for the 10th St George's Day procession in West Bromwich to go ahead. The parade started from Stone Cross, West Bromwich and finished at Dartmouth Park. Apart from celebrating St George, the dead of the two World Wars were remembered as were those members of our forces still serving in conflict overseas.
One of the organizers, Nick Clorley told me an estimated 15,000 people had turned out for the occasion. Even an improvement in the weather allowed the sun to shine on the righteous!
Wake up England!!!
