BROMSGROVE District Council will become the first authority in the county to fly flags in recognition of climate change emergency tomorrow (September 20).
Council Leader Karen May will raise two ‘sea signalling’ flags at the council’s Parkside headquarters to show the authority’s declaration of becoming more green.
Councillors will be joined by other participants across the county including schools, Worcester Cathedral and the city’s Greenpeace group, as part of ‘Flags on Friday’.
Coun May said: “We are committed to climate change and are seeking funding, changing policies and making decisions to make Bromsgrove a better and greener district for all our residents and visitors.
“By flying the flags tomorrow we are demonstrating our commitment to the cause and inspiring other councils, organisations and businesses to recognise the need to take action and change the course of how we exist on our precious planet.”
Flags on Friday has been organised by David Train who started the campaign in Fladbury where he runs the Paddle Club.
