World Cup Flag Fever at Lancaster Town Hall

John Freeman
Lancaster City Council is flying the flag of St. George at both town halls in support of England's World Cup bid in South Africa.

The result of a recent decision to fly the England flag during major sporting events means the flag will be flying high in Lancaster and Morecambe on the days that the England football team will be playing.

The Mayor of Lancaster, Coun Tony Wade, welcomed the decision: "Major events such as this are a great way of bringing local communities together and gives us all the opportunity to show how proud we are of our national teams. 

"Lancaster City Council is keen to be part of the  World Cup celebrations and show its support by flying the flag of St. George from its municipal buildings."
