Welcome to our February edition...
Here we are in February already and leaving Christmas and New Year a distant memory. Still, weve lots to
look forward to with Valentines Day, Mothers Day and Easter all happening within the next two months! If youre planning on eating out with your Valentine or treating your mum on Mothering Sunday, then dont leave booking until the last minute and risk missing out!
As a fan of winter, Im enjoying the cold weather, and recently weve seen some amazing sunrises and sunsets around the fens and beyond. I am a member of a Facebook group called Nature of the Fens and here I get to see so many beautiful photos, it was a real struggle to choose one for the cover this month. If you are a budding photographer, please feel free to send me any
photographs of March or the surrounding area that you think are cover worthy. Its a great opportunity to showcase your work, and choosing the cover image is one of my favourite jobs.
Im currently working on a new, up to date club directory, so bear with me whilst this is being put together and if you are part of a club and interested in being included within this, please contact me. Im always on the look-out for community news too, so if you have anything that you would like to share with the rest of the town, then send it in and I would be happy to publish this.
A word of warning to all you bachelors out there. Be extra vigilant on Leap Day, February 29th, because when your lady gets down on one knee and opens a small box, whilst staring into your eyes, then utters those four famous words, they wont be Whats for dinner darling?

Why do we have Leap Years?Leap years are needed to keep our modern day Gregorian calendar in alignment with the Earths revolutions around the sun. It takes the Earth approximately 365.242199 days or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds to circle once around the sun. This is called a tropical year. However, the Gregorian calendar has only 365 days in a year, so if we didnt add a day on February 29th nearly every four years, we would lose almost six hours off our calendar every year. After only one hundred years, our calendar would be off by approximately twenty-four days!
Which years are Leap Years?In the Gregorian calendar, three criteria must be taken into account to identify leap years:
The year is evenly divisible by four;
If the year can be evenly divided by 100, it is NOT a leap year, unless;
The year is also evenly divisible by 400. Then it is a leap year.
This means that 2000 and 2400 are leap years, while 1800, 1900, 2100, 2200, 2300 and 2500 are NOT leap years.
Leap Day Customs and Traditions
Women propose to their men According to an old Irish legend, or possibly history, St Brigid struck a deal with St Patrick to allow women to propose to men and not just the other way around every four years. This is believed to have been introduced to balance the traditional roles of men and women in a similar way to how Leap Day balances the calendar.
Twelve Pairs of GlovesIn some places, Leap Day has been known as Bachelors Day for the same reason. A man was expected to pay a penalty, such as a gown or money, if he refused a marriage pro-posal from a woman on Leap Day. In many European countries, especially in the upper classes of society, tradition dictates that any man who refuses a womans proposal on February 29th has to buy her twelve pairs of gloves. The intention is that the woman can wear the gloves to hide the embarrassment of not having an engagement ring.
2016 is a Leap Year
In the Gregorian calendar, three criteria must be
If the year can be evenly divided by 100, it is
are leap years, 2500 are
of not having an engagement ring.
A leap year has 366 days, as opposed to a common year, which has only 365. Nearly every four years is a leap year, and we add a leap day, an extra or intercalary day, on February 29th.
