baleful-thought of prudence [any more] than for him duty is
to think about, ere his hence going;
what his spirit of good or evil,
after the day of death, judged shall be.

We are working to raise awareness of the nation’s heroes such as Lord Bill Slim and Admiral Lord Horatio Nelson.
We wish to foster interest in our country’s folk traditions.
We also intend to revive interest in England’s linguistic heritage, for example, by supporting the work of the Yorkshire Dialect Society, the Lakeland Dialect Society, Norfolk Dialect Society, Black Country Dialect Dictionary, and the Northumbrian Language Society.
We seek to introduce the public to the work of the Rev William Barnes, the Dorset dialect poet and polymath, both to his poetry in the dialect and his proposals for National English which are being are being developed today by David Cowley and Father Andrew Phillips.
