Local List

Hail Julius... Named after Julius Ceasar who was born in this month, July in Blackpool will be hot! With sunshine and school holidays, July is a month for children. For me, it’s always been a magical month, ending school, watching cricket, walking on the sands, with friends at the beach, playing football and cricket in Stanley Park or lazing summer evenings away watching the sun set over the Irish Sea. For me and my school friends, it was a peaceful and tranquil place to grow up, a place where adults could be trusted and were tolerant and helpful to youngsters. Blackpool was a caring and secure place to grow up in. Let us keep it that way.

God gave us the finest place in the world to enjoy summer, so I hope 2013 will be your best yet. “The things which the child loves remain in the domain of the heart until old age. The most beautiful thing in life is that our souls remain over the places where we once enjoyed ourselves” Kahlil Gibran Local List wishes you a hot, hot July!

David Thorley

Publisher

P.S. Don’t forget to enjoy Comedy Carpet Live (27 & 28 July) at the Opera House with the brilliant Paul Merton. We can celebrate being the world’s true Capital of Comedy.

DRAIN SERVICES

'St Swithin’s Day, if it does rain, Full forty days, it will remain St Swithin’s Day, if it be fair, For forty days, t'will rain no more.'

1HOUR RESPONSE No Call Out Charge

St. Swithin (or more properly, Swithun) was a Saxon Bishop of Winchester. On his deathbed, he asked to be buried out of doors. For nine years, his wishes were followed, but then, the monks of Winchester moved his remains to a splendid shrine inside the cathedral on 15 July 971. According to legend there was a heavy rain storm during the ceremony. However, according to the Met Office, this old wives' tale is nothing other than a myth. It has been put to the test on 55 occasions, when it has been wet on St Swithin's Day and 40 days of rain did not follow.

There I was.... on a July morning, Looking for love With the strength, Of a new day dawning, And the beautiful sun At the sound, Of the first bird singing, I was leaving for home With the storm, And the night behind me, And a road of my own With the day... came the resolution - I’ll be looking for you Lyrics from July Morning by David Bryon and Ken Hensley. Released on Uriah Heep’s 3rd album, ‘Look at Yourself’. In Bulgaria, there is a tradition called ‘July Morning’. People from all over the country travel to the Black Sea coast on the night of June 30 to meet the first sun rays on the 1st of July. Naturally, Uriah Heep's July Morning is the main refrain. The tradition is linked to the hippy movement and was a subtle protest during communist times. The communist government resigned in 1990 and July Morning became an official celebration. Today the tradition has lost its some of its original meaning. In Bulgaria, the sea is associated in the first place with summer vacation and good time, and July 1 is about when vacation starts for most high schools and colleges. The feeling of elation from the first morning sun rays as a symbol of a new beginning in life, however, is still the main reason people observe the celebration. July Morning may be related to sun worship and to midsummer night rites popular throughout Bulgarian lands ever since antiquity. And so, today in Bulgaria it is believed that the best way to experience July Morning is to retreat with a few friends to one of the quiet beaches on the Black Sea facing east.
