LETTER: Sussex’s own patron saint

I read with interest Mr Harman’s letter (May 3) explaining his disappointment with how England marks its patron saint’s day.

Some believe St George never actually came to England. I can though save Mr Harman, for we here in Sussex have our own patron saint. Saint Richard was a 13th-century Bishop of Chichester and his day is celebrated on June 16.

So, Mr Harman, go out on that day and see the martlets flags flying.
