Southwell Town Council has organised for community groups in town to have a flag on display in the town flagholders over shops from Thursday 3rd September until the Bramley Festival. They may also be on display next year if the weather is kind to the flags!!

As a significant community action group in Southwell, we are pleased to be included in this display.

Some wardens met at social distance on Bank Holiday Monday to launch the flag. Quite by chance, almost all huddles were represented! Plus our canine and baby mascots!
