The Essex flag was flown over the Town Hall yesterday to celebrate ‘Essex Day’, October 26th.
The Romford MP Andrew Rosindell alongside Havering’s Leader of the Council, Councillor Damian White were at the flag raising ceremony to mark the special occasion.
Mr Rosindell said : “Havering Town Hall today proudly flies the flag of the County of Essex, the historic county to which we are proud to belong, marking Essex Day.
“In Romford our Essex identity remains as strong as ever. Through history, geography, cultural, sporting, military, wildlife conservation and a multitude of social connections, the importance of Romford and Havering being part of Essex is something we should all take enormous pride in. We may not fall under Essex County Council but we remain part of the overall historic County of Essex and being a Greater London Borough does not change that.
“Let’s all be proud of the great English County of Essex and celebrate our cherished county heritage.”
