I show here the two new flags made by the flag maker who supplies the Armed Forces , Royal Houses and Government buildings . They are 9 feet in length and of high quality which should mean they will last a while.
The response to my appeal has been wonderful and over 50 individuals have donated or pledged their support in terms of cash or cheque. There will be a surplus of these funds and I will advise later what is to be done with this.
Meantime, I have handed the two flags over to Mr Collis-Smith who is responsible for the raising and lowering of the flags on the church flag pole -- which , by the way, was provided years ago by the Parish Council.
I have offered my help to go on the roof of the church to help Mr Collis- Smith whenever he intends to raise the first -- which will be the cross of St George , flag of England .
Sincere thanks to all good folks who stepped up to the plate in responding to my appeal.
