09 JulPeople urged to write on bunting

Residents in five Kent towns are being asked to write on bunting to support a bid for city status.

The messages, from people in the towns of Rochester, Strood, Gillingham, Chatham, and Rainham, will be used as evidence to support the area of Medway’s bid.

The bunting will be available online, and at various summer events throughout the area.

Medway Council’s Rodney Chambers said: “We are a city in all but name. Medway is a place with a rich heritage that is going places and undoubtedly has a great future.

“I would urge as many people as possible to draw, paint or write on one of our special bunting flags indicating why they believe Medway should be a city then send it back to us.

“This will really help strengthen our bid and help us let people know that Medway has so much to offer and should become a city.”

I don’t recommend writing on my vintage bunting. But as it’s all hand made, it already has that personal touch!
