Flag tribute to Thatcher

AN ALDWICK couple lowered their Union flag to half-mast to mark the funeral of Baroness Thatcher.

Jill and Richard Ostler made the tribute at the beach terrace of their Craigweil estate home.

Jill, a former Aldwick parish councillor, said: “This moment in history could not be ignored.

We felt it right to demonstrate our respect and gratitude to a great lady, the like of whom we are never likely to see again.

“This country owes so much to her that she must be seen as standing second only to Winston Churchill as a great British leader who emerged at a time of desperate need.”
