    That's awesome! I didn't know there was a Yorkshire day... feel like I should find a suitable way to celebrate. Suggestions?

    There is a celebration of Yorkshire Day today out side Morley Town Hall at 11.30am and The Yorkshire Declaration of Integrity will be read out.

    "I, (your name), being a resident of
    the [West/North/East] Riding of Yorkshire [or City of York] declare;

    * that Yorkshire is three Ridings and the City of York, with these Boundaries of 1124 years standing;
    * that the address of all places in these Ridings is Yorkshire;
    * that all persons born therein or resident therein and loyal to the Ridings are Yorkshire-men and women;
    * that any person or corporate body which deliberately ignores or denies the aforementioned shall forfeit all claim to Yorkshire status.

    These declarations made this Yorkshire Day 2008.
    God Save the Queen!"

  • Is it due to the Battle of Minden? As there were a lot of other regiments there and no one else celebrates it? Or do they?
