Its Chief Executive, Jim Walker, says, ‘We are honoured to have been selected to fly two of the Commonwealth flags and believe we certainly fit the criteria for this initiative, which stipulated that flags should be raised in significant, strategic and eye-catching locations. Both of our attractions boast stunning natural backdrops, and so will provide a stunning setting for the ceremony.
