As you well know St Georges Day will soon be upon us with large areas of England either oblivious to it or cowering under the bed untill it's all over just incase SOMEBODY has a drama and can't deal with the fact that they live in England(GROAN).

But hark,what light through yonder window breaks,it is Bucks Free Press and Dartford Council is the Sun.

Backing patron saint, by George

RESIDENTS, shops and schools are all being asked to fly the national flag to celebrate the patron saint of England.

Dartford Council is aiming to make sure the borough will be awash with red and white on April 23.

This is after a decision was made to celebrate St George's Day.

The council is planning to give away 100 large flags and 100 car flags to the first 200 residents to claim them from the civic centre in Home Gardens.

Council leader Councillor Jeremy Kite said: "The St George is our national flag and we should be proud to fly it.

"It's ridiculous to bow to the suggestions the flag is provocative or likely to offend."

Patriotism will be a theme of the weekend which will also see the borough celebrating the Queen's 80th birthday.
