Witham Mayor to raise the flag for armed forces

First published in News

THE MAYOR of Witham will be raising the flag at the town hall to celebrate national Armed Forces Day.

The union jack will be lifted by councillor Janet Money in support of the UK armed forces from cadets to veterans and to raise awareness of their contribution.

A coffee morning will be held after the ceremony in aid of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research and Renew counselling charity as part of the Town Mayor’s Appeal.

The flag will be raised at 11am on Friday June 27 at Witham Town Hall, 61 Newland Street.

It's a 'Union flag' not a 'union jack'.

Armed Forces Day - we do not need such overt displays which are more typical of third world countries. 'Remembrance Day' is enough as it encompasses the Armed Forces...

remains to be seen, I have a Union Jack outside my house and the old town hall in Braintree also flies the Union Jack as we both have jack staffs, but that photo does show a Union Flag on an upright pole
