PARIS TRIBUTE: Town Halls fly flag at half mast

6149d3d96fbc759c6dd8f114c4167432Flags stood at half mast today (Monday) at Denton Town Hall, Dukinfield Town Hall, and Ashton Town Hall.

Stockport Town Hall has been lit in red, white and blue as a mark of respect.

Andrew Gwynne MP said:

“The impact of this atrocity has been felt right across our community. We are sharing the grief of our friends across the channel – but we also face the same threat here.

“Life must now go on as normal if the terrorists are not to claim victory. But we must also accept that we cannot shrink away from the world.

“Many of the Town Halls across Tameside are proudly flying the flag of France at half mast, and in Denton our thoughts are also with our friends in our twin town, Montigny le Bretonneux, on the outskirts of Paris.

“I offer my deepest condolences to the families and friends of all the victims, and to the great nation of France.

“Today we stand with Paris. Nous sommes avec Paris.”
