THE CHAIRMAN of Wychavon District Council said he hoped the authority’s Armed Forces flag being raised would help provide a much-needed morale boost to servicemen and women who continued to keep the country safe.
Coun Robert Raphael spoke on Tuesday during a short socially-distanced service at the Civic Centre in Pershore which was also attended by Rev Andrew Spurr, vicar of Evesham, the chairman’s consort Diana Raphael, Coun Rob Adams, and Jayne Pickering, Deputy Chief Executive of Wychavon.
Coun Raphael added: “Raising the flag is a way of showing our support for the troops and their families.”
A video of the ceremony is available to view (above).
