It’s Not the 1st of May, It’s Batman Day!

Doesn’t look like there’s many people left who HAVEN’T played Batman!

What’s more, we’ve just made this very important infographic to see if we can calculate the best Batman of them all, and figure out where old Batfleck comes in to the equation.

Why Dogs are Man’s Best Friends – International Guide Dog Day

International Guide Dog Day is dedicated to recognise the vital role that Guide Dogs have in our world, they provide a better life in so many ways for a huge number of people. Not only do they make everyday chores and activities easier for their owners but they are their best friends and companions as well. It is impossible to feel anything but love, respect and awe when you witness how incredible these dogs are and how dedicated and loyal they are to their owners.

St Georges Day…Things we do that make us proud to be English

And maybe a bit British too…

April 23rd, St George’s Day is the day when England remembers St George, our patron saint. It remembers the the anniversary of his death and is seen as our national day. According to the legend, he was a soldier in the Roman army who killed a dragon and saved a princess. Definitely a fairytale as well as a legend, it involves a princess after all! Today is a day not only for remembering this gallant knight but also to be grateful and joyful and all happy words ending in “ful” about being English, a lot of which we must admit is shared by the whole of Britain :) Today we look at everything that reminds us how English we are, what awesome traits, funny habits, yummy but possibly odd favourite foods we have and things that are quintessentially English!
