Staplehurst Parish Council joins the nation in mourning the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.
As a mark of respect, during the period of Royal mourning, the Union Flag at the All Saints Church will fly at half-mast, and there will be a bell toll on Saturday 10th April.
You can leave your tributes to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh by signing the books of condolence on the websites of The Royal Household or The Church of England.
You can find the books of condolence here:
The Royal Household https://www.royal.uk/
The Church of England https://www.churchofengland.org/remembering-his-royal...
The Royal Family have suggested that members of the public may wish to consider making a donation to a charity of their choice, or one of The Duke of Edinburgh’s Patronages in memory of His Royal Highness, instead of leaving floral tributes. However if you wish to lay Flowers you can do so at All Saints Church to the north (left) side of the church or on the north side raised flower bed close to the library up to Monday 19th April. We kindly request that flowers are not in cellophane.
Unfortunately, during the current lockdown, the Parish Council arrangements will regrettably be restricted.
Further acts of remembrance and details including church services will be advised in due course.
Councillor Paddy Riordan
Chairman of Staplehurst Parish Council
