A PENSIONER will be flying the flag for Cheshire today to protest at the introduction of the new local councils.
Fred Fox, of Darley Avenue, Crewe, is up in arms that Cheshire County Council will no longer exist after March 31.
He said this is his way of offering a ‘two-fingered salute’ to the new unitary authorities which will replace it – Cheshire East Council and Cheshire West & Chester.
He said: “I have bought a new flagpole especially for April 1 which I will put up and I will be flying a Cheshire Flag I bought on the internet,” said Fred. Cheshire County Council ends after 120 years of service.
