The Town rarely flies its flag at half-mast, but today it has been lowered as a tribute to the late Capt Sir Tom Moore.

Capt Sir Tom, at the age of 99, raised over £33 million to help the NHS during this Covid-19 pandemic, for which he was knighted by the Queen. He died of pneumonia and coronavirus on Tuesday 2 February 2021. He was a beacon of optimism during these dark days.
