A large group gathered today outside the Town Hall at midday to hold a one-minute silence and to see the Ukrainian Flag raised. The group included a large number of Ukrainian refugees who have been supported and accommodated in the area thanks to the work of Waveney Hosts.

The short ceremony, which marked the one-year anniversary of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, included a speech from Ukrainian refugee Inna which was read in both English and Ukrainian.

Lowestoft Town Council would like to express their thanks to Froggy Hire Ltd who donated their time to assist with the raising of the Ukrainian Flag.
