A "worthy legacy" to Guernsey

A local resident has offered to make an annual donation to the States for the maintenance and replacement of the flags on the Weighbridge Mast.

Susan Black had been planning on leaving a legacy in her will for the upkeep but, in light of the corona virus pandemic and the economic struggles it has brought, she has decided to bring her donation forward.

"Each morning I look out of the window at the flags on the mast to see which way the wind is blowing," Mrs Black explained. "They are a spectacular sight and have given me a lot of pleasure over the years.

"I would like to help ensure that the flags will still be there for many years to come for all to enjoy."

Education, Sport & Culture President Matt Fallaize said: "The flags are a glorious sight to see for locals and visitors and with Mrs Black's help we can replace our standard flags each year and support the Sea Cadets with their maintenance fee."

"This will be a worthy legacy to the island and for that we are very grateful."
