Patrington Parish Council is part of East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
WHEN Patrington Parish Council decided it needed a flag to be flown at various locations in the parish, pupils at Patrington Academy were invited to submit designs for the new flag. Dozens of entries were received and councillors selected elements from some of them for the final design. However one entry, from six-year-old Annabelle Harris, really appealed to them for its idea of combining the names of Patrington, Patrington Haven and Winestead in the shape of a goal post. Last Friday Council Chairman Phil Wilson visited the school to present one of the flags to be flown at the school, along with a certificate of thanks and some vouchers to a very surprised Annabelle at the school assembly. A number of flags have been purchased and these will be flown at the village cenotaph and also at Patrington Haven Leisure Park. A site is being sought in Winestead. Mr Wilson praised the pupils for the great submissions and said it was good to involve them in their future part in parish life.
