Partners fly the flag with pride

East Sussex County Council, Sussex Police and the East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service are showing their support for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans-gender (LGBT) community by raising the Pride flag at County Hall in Lewes.

County Council Leader Peter Jones was joined by Chief Fire Officer, Des Prichard and Chief Constable Martin Richards this week to fly the flag at the Council’s headquarters - ahead of the main Pride celebrations in Brighton at the weekend.

East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service, Chief Executive and Chief Fire Officer said:

“I am delighted on behalf of East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service to show our continuing support to the Pride event. The Pride event is a fantastic celebration of the diverse communities we serve.

“East Sussex Fire & Rescue Service is fully committed to demonstrating our commitment to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender equality and we are proud to be walking in the Pride parade, promoting community cohesion.”
