The St George flag was not flying from Wisbech town hall council office on April 23, St George’s Day.

Why not?


(via website)

FOONOTE: Susanah Farmer, deputy town clerk, explained: Our main flag pole rope is broken (again). The main flagpole was originally accessed through the roof. This is no longer an option.

You may also want to watch:

However, the arrangement of ropes has caused ongoing problems. We are looking at options and would welcome suggestions (constructive) on refurbishment or replacement; perhaps even flagpoles in another location.

We bought a new lightweight flag which was flying for the St George’s Day event on Saturday 26th to fly on the other flagpole (which is not a proper flagpole and the weight of the traditional flags caused concern - there is quite a whip on it when the wind is up).
