Lancashire flag flies at Southport Town Hall

The Lancashire flag is flying at Southport Town Hall to celebrate Lancashire County Cricket Club winning the County Championship.

Lancashire won the Championship outright for the first time in 77 years and the flag is being flown to recognise the club's achievements. The flag will be seen for a week, coinciding with Lancashire Day which falls on Sunday, November 27.

The idea of flying the Lancashire flag was agreed by the Council following a motion put forward by the Liberal Democrats. The motion also congratulated Southport and Birkdale Cricket Club who drew record crowds to their Trafalgar Road ground for the Lancashire match.
