Council flies the flag
8:39am Friday 13th September 2013 in Romsey
The Union Flag will be flown over Test Valley Borough Council buildings every day following an online petition signed by almost 100 people.
The flag will fly over the Crosfield Hall, Romsey and the council’s Beech Hurst offices and the Guildhall in Andover.
The only exception will be on specific flag days, designated by the Government, and when twinning partners visit the borough. When council meetings take place, the TVBC flag will fly below the Union Flag.
Ian Carr, leader of the council, said: “The council has traditionally followed the guidance from central government about when it should be flown.
“However, I have received a request, via an online petition, that the Union Jack should be flown every day on council buildings. I think this is a sensible suggestion that I am happy for us to adopt it."
