Update on Flying the Flag for the England team during World Cup

June 15, 2010

I was at the Civic Centre during lunchtime and noticed that my suggestion had not been taken up so mentioned it in conversation with some interested parties.  I have just received the following:

“Cllr Sharma has asked me to let you know that he has given instructions to fly the flag of St George on match days – ie days when England are playing in the world cup.”

I acknowledge that he has compromised and have just written to him.

Email to Councillor Sharma 10/06/2010

Yesterday, I sent the following email to Councillor Jagdish Sharma, Leader of the Council:

“Dear Councillor Sharma,

I am pleased to see that the UK flag continues to fly at the Civic Centre following on from the recent Local Elections and trust that this will be a continuing feature, only broken when it is St Georges Day.  However, with the biggest tournament of the Sporting Calendar upon us, would you agree that it would be a good idea to fly the flag of St George for as long as England remain in the tournament?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards
Councillor Bowen”

No response yet but will hopefully receive one today.
