Council flags to fly at half-mast for Captain Sir Tom Moore

Posted on 3 February 2021

Statement by South Holland District Council and its councillors

Along with other civic buildings across the country, South Holland District Council will be flying its flags at half-mast to mark the sad passing of Captain Sir Tom Moore yesterday.

Captain Tom's fundraising efforts raised over £30million for the NHS in April last year, but, as important as the money, he also raised the spirits of the nation during one of its darkest times. 

Like people all over the country, our thoughts are with his family at this sad time and on behalf of our community we would like to thank them for sharing him with us.

An online book of condolences is available for anyone to fill out their appreciations and memories, at
