March is one of our favourite months of the year. It’s a month of new beginnings, with fresh new growth popping up in the garden and days starting to draw out as we approach the first day of spring. As the winter months start to fade behind us, we look forward to the start of British summer time and hopefully better weather and warm sunny days.
Another reason we love March so much is because it’s a month chockfull of awareness days. Marie Curie hold their daffodil appeal this month; the Downs Syndrome Association have their awareness week (21st), marking it by wearing odd socks. It’s also World Glaucoma Week (10th-16th), International Women’s Day (8th) and World Book Day (7th). And let’s not forget that March is Alison’s birthday month too.
