Events taking place
If you would like to visit a Yorkshire Day event, there are some suggestions here.Now all you need to do is practice the Yorkshire mantra whilst sipping a brew of Yorkshire tea.
'Ear all, see all, say nowt; Eyt all, sup all, pay nowt; And if ivver tha does owt fer nowt -Allus do it fer thissen.'
For those of you who are not aficionados with the Yorkshire language, this loosely translates as 'Hear all, see all, say nothing; Eat all, drink all, pay nothing; And if ever you do anything for nothing - always do it for yourself.'
Hope you have a fab Yorkshire Day whatever you are up to. Si thee later!
