Amid the alarms and excursions of the general election, folk in Over-Wessex (Southampton Province, which includes Winchester) may have forgotten to make preparations for Wessex Week in their region around St Swithun's Day on July the 15. Wessex flags and bunting are available for those who wish to do so.
