Book of Condolence

Queen Elizabeth II

It is with great sadness that the Parish Council has received the news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. We send our condolences to her family and all those who will be mourning her loss.

Her Majesty's 70-year reign as monarch saw huge changes in our society and she guided us through good and bad times with dignity, compassion and honor.

As we enter into a period of mourning you may wish to pay your respects.

Book of Condolence

A Book of Condolence has been opened this morning by Cllr David Truesdale. It will be available for signing 10:00 to 16:00 Monday to Friday until the day after the funeral in the Conference Room at the Village Hall.

An area for floral tributes has been set aside in Banks Park. We ask that any flowers are not wrapped in cellophane as they will be composted at the end of the mourning period and used to plant a memorial tree. We also ask that no candles are placed in the area.

In addition, please note that the start of the official mourning period will mean that parish council meetings scheduled for Monday 12th September will now be postponed until after the funeral.
