Support For Ukraine
Published: 27 February 2022
Banbury is showing support for Ukraine by lighting the town hall blue and yellow this week.
The lights were switched on late Saturday and will stay on initially for seven nights.
Leader of Banbury Town Council Kieron Mallon said: “Towns and cities in this country – and around the world – are illuminating prominent buildings in Ukraine’s national colours as part of a massive demonstration against the Russian invasion.
“Banbury is proud to join the protest and show our support for Ukraine and our opposition to Vladimir Putin’s bid to crush that country’s democracy and independence.”
Cllr Mallon added: “I’m sure the people of Banbury will agree with what we are doing and support the protest.”
