After receiving a request from Cumbria Pride, Silloth-on-Solway Town Council are helping celebrate 40 years of the pride flag, by raising a flag on Silloth Green, along with 40 or more other towns, villages, businesses and organisations in Cumbria, to show support for Cumbria’s diverse community and help promote unity and acceptance.
The 40 flags in 40 places will be on display during the week before the Cumbria Pride event which will take place in Carlisle on Saturday 29th September 2018. The locations of all the flags will be put onto a map on their website and social media networks. So feel free to tag and share. For more information about Cumbria Pride and their upcoming events check out their website at www.cumbriapride.org
