St Swithun's Day

Tuesday 15th July 2014
Good weather for school sports
According to superstition fine day today augurs well for the coming weeks.  It is said that if it rains on St Swithun's Day, it will rain for the following forty days.  (Apparently when he was Bishop of Winchester Swithun said that when he died he wanted to be buried not inside the cathedral but outside "where his grave might be trodden on by passers by and the rain fall upon it".)
