Important dates in June

2016-05-25 06:00

MOTHERS had their day this month and fathers can line up to be spoilt (although not to the same extent) on their day. Father’s Day is on Sunday 19 June. Traditionally they do not get the same amount of media coverage and hype as mothers, but just a reminder in case you decided you would like to acknowledge with love what he has done for you over the years.
Ramadam starts on 6 June (depending on the sighting of the new moon when members of the Muslim faith fast from sunrise to sunset. This month-long ceremony ends on 7 July­. Youth Day falls on Thursday 16 June.

Father’s Day messages will be published in the 15 June Greytown Gazett (usual deadlines). Ramadam messages and advertising will be in the 1 June issue.
