Statement from The Mayor of Preston to mark the passing of Captain Sir Tom Moore.
03 February 2021
Mayor of Preston, Councillor David Borrow said,
"Today we join cities across England and the UK, lowering our flag above Town Hall to half mast as a sign of respect to mark the passing of Captain Sir Tom Moore.
In these incredibly difficult times, Cpt Sir Tom Moore became a beacon of hope, reminding us that "the sun will shine on you again and the clouds will go away." He was a source of inspiration to many and at the age of 100, was able to bring us together to raise a significant sum of money for such an important cause.
May he rest in peace, and may we not lose sight of the hope he inspired amongst many."
