South Holland District Council is expected to join thousands of people across the globe in raising the flag for Commonwealth Day 2017.

Flags will be raised throughout the United Kingdom at 10am on Monday after a personal message from the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth and a specially written Commonwealth Affirmation will be read out.

Bruno Peek, founder of “Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth”, said: “I am amazed how quickly this event has caught the public;s imagination in the UK and around the Commonwealth.

“It is a positive and uplifting way for people to link with, and assist, fellow citizens of the Commonwealth in a family that spans across oceans and continents.”

Already confirmed is South Kesteven District Council’s “Fly a Flag for the Commonwealth” event will be held outside the council’s offices in Grantham, led by council chairman, Coun Judy Smith.
