    Hello everyone, the Helpful Health Hubs contest is over now, it was a great success for HubPages and everyone who participated in it.  A big thanks to all the Hubbers who took part in the contest through the HubMob and to all the HubMobsters who make possible the weekly HubMob.  Last week we published a total of 70 hubs on Nutrition. 

    We are almost in April now, well into spring ready to celebrate St George's Day Patron Saint of England.  The celebrations take place the 23rd of April but this week we are going to honour Saint George and everything that is English.  This is the week to hub about England as a country to visit for holidays, England as a place to live, English celebrations, English food and drinks.  You can also hub about English celebrities, English music and films.  Anything English is allowed this week.  As it is a wide topic, please make sure that you categorize your hub correctly according to your chosen subtopic.


    To join this week's HubMob please follow the steps below:

    1. YOU MUST START YOUR HUB CLICKING THIS LINK.  Choose the Answer the Request green button.  Choose the MAKE A HUB ABOUT IT option. 

    2. Choose a relevant title for your Hub to get a good ranking in the search engines.

    3. If necessary change the category on your hub to best suit your topic. 

    4. Include the HubMob RSS Feed in your hub: http://hubpages.com/question/44521/st-g … ew&rss
    For more information on how to add the RSS feed to your hub you can click here

    5. Add the HubMob graphic below to your hub so that everyone who reads it will know that it is part of the official HubMob topic of the week.

    6. After you publish your HubMob Hub, come back to the forum and post a link to your hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.  Take advantage of the free publicity!

    This sounds like a great topic, one I'd like very much to contribute something to...

    As St Georges day is the day before my birthday, I always paid the good man a nod - and tipped him a Vodka for good measure (practice for the following day!) and for Queen, country and home, I've written Haworth Yorkshire, which is but a stones throw from my place of birth. Take a trip with me - you'll enjoy it wink

    This is my first hubmob post, and I thought it was fitting seeing how I am sitting in a hotel room in St. George, Utah.  Ironic?

    http://hubpages.com/hub/The-Scouting-Movement

    Saint George is the Patron Saint of the Scouting Movement which was founded by a famous British General, Lord Baden-Powell.  The first scouting camp was sponsored by the General in 1907 and his treatise on scouting was published in 1908.

    The Boy Scouts of America owe their direct roots to Lord Baden-Powell and they will be celebrating their 100th anniversary this year! 

    I hope this hub is informative and meets the spirit of the hubmob!

    April is National Humor Month, but also National Child Abuse Prevention Month, supported in England as well as in US and elsewhere - and by some of my favorite British actors. 

    April is also the month to honor: Poetry, Diversity, Kites, Gardens, Food, Mental Health, Autism Awareness, Older Americans, and Volunteering.

    This April, we'll celebrate English Actors/Comedians --
