Westminster attack

As a mark of respect for those that have died and been injured in Westminster on 22 March 2017, the Prime Minister has asked that all Departments of Her Majesty’s Government lower their Union Flag to half-mast.

Local councils are not bound by this request, but out of respect, we will be flying the Union Flag at half-mast on Hythe Town Hall.
