As at 13 January we have identified 14 items of correspondence from the last 12 months which have St. George’s Day as the main subject and one item of correspondence that has St. Patrick’s Day as the main subject.
It is possible that further correspondence could mention St. George’s Day or St. Patrick’s Day as secondary issues, but this correspondence could be identified only at disproportionate cost.
DCMS has had no specific discussions with tourism agencies about marking St. George's Day in 2009. However VisitEngland and some individual regions will have celebrations to mark St. George's Day in 2009. For example VisitEngland will highlight St. Georges Day events on enjoyengland.com as well as hosting Enjoy England Awards for Excellence on this date.
