Romford M.P. Andrew Rosindell today celebrated the “indelible Essex heritage” of Romford in a flag-raising ceremony outside Havering Town Hall to mark Essex Day.
Essex Day, which takes place every year on the 26th October, is the feast day of Saint Cedd. Saint Cedd is celebrated in Essex for helping to stop the reversion of Essex to its Pagan origins, after an initial spate of conversion to Christianity in the kingdom.
Andrew Rosindell M.P. said:
“Our Essex pride and soul has shone throughout our historic market town for over eight centuries and it is certainly not going to be dimmed now.
Administrative boundaries continuously shift and change, but the historic boundaries on which the foundations of our nation rest, will be fixed for many centuries to come. No one who knows Romford can be in any doubt about its indelible Essex heritage.
How proud I am to see the Essex flag flying above Havering Town Hall once again!"
