Given that Wednesday 20 March 2019 was County Durham Day the Mayor, Councillor Michael Young along with local residents of Chilton joined together to raise the County Durham official flag.
The Mayor, Councillor Michael Young asked Mr J Moffatt if he would like to raise the flag given that it was his twin daughters who won the competition to design the County Durham flag in 2013. Mr Moffatt was happy to raise the flag on behalf of the residents of Chilton.
The Mayor, Councillor M. Young stated “The residents of Chilton are proud of their heritage and history and association with Durham. To have the Durham Flag designed by 2 of our young people is such an honour to them and the Community of Chilton”
