Building to be lit up to mark historic EU exit
Dudley Council House is to be lit up in the colours of red, white and blue tomorrow (Fri) to mark Britain’s historic departure from the European Union.
A number of local authorities around the country have pledged to fly the national flag from local authority buildings to mark the occasion.
But as the Union Jack already flies from Dudley Council House all year round, council bosses have decided on an additional step to mark the day.
The three windows above the front door will be lit up in the colours of the national flag from 6pm ahead of the country officially leaving the European Union at 11pm.
Councillor Patrick Harley, leader of the council, said:
Tomorrow is a historic day for Britain, and it is important we mark that.
The country has been through an unprecedented time of uncertainty in recent years. But now it is time to move on, whilst continuing to recognise the importance for us to build on our relationships with our international trade partners.
It is an exciting time for Dudley borough with several multi-million pound investments in the pipeline, and we are looking forward positively to cracking on and making our plans a reality.
