Following the earlier sad news of the passing of Prince Philip, the following measures are in place. Unfortunately due to Covid restrictions the Book of Condolence which was planned cannot be made available. In due course a national e-book will be provided. These details are currently not available but will be found on www.royal.uk
The Palace is not encouraging floral tributes due to social distancing measures, if residents insist on laying flowers please lay these under the rotunda at the Garden of Remembrance with no cellophane or cards and ensure that social distance guidelines are followed . Any flowers laid at other areas of the town will be respectfully and carefully moved to this area.
Flags at the Town Council office at Champions Manor Hall have been lowered to half-mast and the litter pickers will be wearing arm bands for the period of mourning.
The funeral arrangements will be announced by the Palace in due course.
