Hi Lizzyminto
The answer may be YEAR OF THE DRAGON.
20 times 100= 2000. In China the year 2000 was the year of the dragon.
Also "time" in this answer.

Pi.As a numeral Pi stands for 80.
EIGHTY- Years so numbered in life,or any century.
Maybe I am "shoehorning"the answer as EIGHTY here.

Think the third one's Saint Swithin. The cryptic part is "saints within".
