A Bushey pupil will raise the flag to celebrate Commonwealth Day with the mayor next week.

Edan Phillips, age 9, from Hartsbourne School in Bushey correctly named all 53 Commonwealth Flags as part of a competition held by Mayor Paul Morris OBE.

Councillor Paul Morris, said: "I set a competition to young people to name as many of the 53 Commonwealth Flags as possible and was delighted to receive 44 entries. This is the first time Hertsmere is holding celebrations to mark Commonwealth Day and having local schoolchildren join me to help lead the ceremony makes it even more special."

The event will take place on Monday at 10am outside the Civic Offices.
