Flags flying for Olympics in Castle Point
5:28pm Thursday 21st June 2012 in Castle Point
CASTLE Point is flying the flag in support of this summer’s Olympic Games.
The borough council has been working with Essex County Council and will be placing flags around the area.
Canvey councillor Ray Howard said: “I think it looks very pleasant. I have seen ties on the lampposts along Canvey Way, so I presume more will be going up here.
“As we near the Olympics, we want to make our borough look appealing to visitors and I must commend anyone involved in organising the event as they are doing quite a job.”
Alf Partridge, a councillor in St Mary’s ward, Benfleet, said: “I think it is excellent. They will really brighten up the station area and the people of Castle Point will really appreciate them too.”
