Whilst trailing the extremely hard working candidates from Salford branch of the British National Party, it is heartening to see so many Salford residents preparing for tomorrows celebrations of our Patron Saint George. Street after street saw George cross bunting and flags fluttering in the pleasant breeze.
Residents of one quiet cul-de-sac told us they are having a good old fashioned street party, all sharing the preparation of food and activities for the kids...... Absolutely fantastic.
It is also refreshing to see so many businesses getting involved, from pubs to local shops all putting up flags to show their patriotism.
We spoke to a shopkeeper and she said she was 'proud to be English, and won't let them bloody anti English PC lot tell me I can't fly my flag'........ Well said Madam.
Gary Tumulty, Salford organiser said, It's wonderful to see so many Salfordians get into the spirit of St George, and we will be out and about supporting whatever activities they do. I'm looking forward to getting involved with my kind of people.
