New 150th flags on their way

At tonight’s West Melton Residents Association meeting, the new flags for the light poles on State Highway 73 were shown, complete with the new 150th anniversary artwork.


The association has received two sets of the flags branded in the 150th artwork, but there is still some ground-work to be done before they can replace the current storm-damaged ones on the main street.

Three of the brackets were lost during recent contractor work on the light poles.  Also, two extra flag brackets are required for the new light poles which were added when the new Preston Downs entrance was created.  A traffic management plan is also required before the flags and brackets can be lifted into place, which the incoming Chairman, Jeff will assist with.

Special thanks were extended to Councillor Mark Alexander for his recent donation for the new brackets.  The association is also very grateful for Nicky’s persistence with the 150th flag project.
