Did you know?The August full moon is known as the Sturgeon Moon.
August was named to honour the first Roman emperor (and grandnephew of Julius Caesar), Augustus Caesar.
Lammas Day falls on 1 August and its name comes from the Anglo- Saxon word hlafmaesse, which means ‘loaf mass’. The festival of Lammas marks the beginning of harvest. Farmers used to make loaves of bread from the new wheat crop and give them to their local church to be used as the Communion bread during a special mass that day.
