    There are a few places in the UK going blue for World Diabetes Day.
    United Kingdom
    Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth
    Havering Town Hall, Romford Essex
    Devere Grand Harbour Hotel, Southampton
    The Deep Aquarium, Kingston upon Hull
    ARCO National Distribution Centre, Kingston upon Hull
    Clock Tower, Southampton
    EDF Energy London Eye, London
    Inverness Castle
    Inverness Cathedral
    Inverness Town House
    Ness Bridge, Inverness
    Yateley School, Hampshire
    Norwich Castle
    Trafalgar Square Fountains, London
    Holy Trinity Church, Hull
    Reigate Priory Park Pavilion, Surrey

    If you live near any of these places then it would be good to see photos. There are only 4 in France this year, none near me. A few years ago they lit the Pont Valentre and Town Hall in Cahors, the trouble is they didn't tell anyone why. We had to try to explain to perplexed locals.
    Dont' forget anyone can do The Big Blue Test
    viewtopic.php?f=1&t=34513&p=325282&hilit=Big+blue+test#p325282

    Not brilliant photos, they didn't really catch the blue (it wasn't that bright)
