Yorkshire Ridings Days

The DCLG (Department for Communities and Local Government) have confirmed they are willing to fly all the Ridings flags from Elland House (Local Government HQ). As there already is an East Riding day we now need to vote for a West and North Riding day so that we have a main day to fly the Ridings flags. Below are current suggestions. Further suggestions are welcome: info@island-man.co.uk
