We already have the Forward flag that flies above the council house and town hall!

The city's civic flag is flown only from public buildings with special permission to use it rarely given but a community flag would be available for all to use.

It's another one of those really small-town moments that damages our city from time to time. Let's move on.

Umm... how?

They're only asking people to design a flag for the people to use informally, because the council barely use the one they have and won't let other people use it without permission?

Some activity down at Vesey St/Lench St Gallan site over the last week or so. Looks like some sort of ground survey on the corner of Vesey St and New Town Row - a large pit has been dug and reinforced with corrugated steel. Could mean the start of some works in the near future hopefully.

Found this in Harborne (related to the London 2012 Olympics). Think I've seen it before.

You guessed it SEVEN CAPITAL
I haven't seen anyone mention the signage put up recently on the empty plot on the corner of Ridley St/Washington St by the Peace Gardens.

Sorry guys, saw some vehicles there last week, pretty sure this is just utilities work!
