CX brings welcome news that the UK Culture Department has agreed to allow the Commonwealth flags to remain along Horse Guards Road in Westminster for the duration the Commonwealth Games this year.
This is down to the work of our Advisory Board member, Andrew Rosindell MP, through his persistence and leadership. He told his local newspaper:
"I proposed this to the Secretary of State...that we should fly them in celebration of the Commonwealth Games. To take them down would be ridiculous when the Commonwealth Games are about to begin"
CX played a leading role in bringing this issue to Mr. Rosindell's attention back in April of this year.
Our Change.org campaign added to the calls that is why we owe a huge thank you to all those who signed our petition from all over the Commonwealth. We could not have achieved this without each and every signature. You should all feel proud today.
We will be hosting a picnic along Horse Guards during the Games to celebrate this shared achievement. More details will follow.
For the moment, sit back and enjoy the snaps we took of the Commonwealth Flags over at Horse Guards a few months ago.
