Nous sommes Charlie, Vive la France!

The Tricolour and Union Jack fly together at half-mast over Hammersmith Town Hall sending a message of solidarity to the family and friends of those lost during last week's terrorism, to surviving victims and French citizens everywhere following the atrocious attacks in Paris.
There are 5,400 French citizens living in the London Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham who are are an important part of our local community. In fact, after  English, French is the second most widely spoken language in the borough.
Residents from all faiths, no faith and all nationalities have been touched by these terrible events and I am proud that our council stands shoulder to shoulder with our friends across the Channel stating Nous sommes Charlie, Vive la France!
