"Wrong decision" made over South Kesteven District Council flying rainbow flag

A senior South Kesteven councillor has admitted the council made the “wrong decision” when it voted not to fly the rainbow flag last year.

The confession from deputy leader Kelham Cooke came after Labour group leader Phil Dilks asked why the council flew the flag this year, adding what had changed since 2018?

The Deepings councillor told last week’s meeting of SKDC’s cabinet that after the flag was raised in February above Grantham’s council offices to mark LGBT History Month, the council issued a press release featuring leader Matthew Lee saying the flag was being flown to “show respect.”
