Flag will be raised

A RAISING of the flag ceremony will take place in Boston ahead of British Armed Forces Day.

Boston Mayor, Coun Mary Wright, will hoist the flag at the Memorial Gardens, in Wide Bargate, on Monday, June 20.

It will be flown until after Armed Forces Day on June 25.

The Worshipful the Mayor of Boston, Councillor Mary Wright, will be raising the flag at the flag mast in the War Memorial Garden, Wide Bargate, Boston, at 10.30am on Monday 20 June 2011 and I am therefore asked to extend a cordial invitation to you to join her to mark this occasion.

The Mayor would very much appreciate your attendance at this important event to raise the awareness of the achievements and contributions of the Armed Forces people, past, present and future. It is also a demonstration of our recognition and appreciation of our people and what they do and we are hoping to involve the local media to capture this.
