Death of The Queen
Charlwood Parish Council
Friday, 9 September 2022
Following the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, Charlwood Parish Council chairman Penny Shoubridge paid this tribute:
"Our Queen has been a wonderful inspiration and example to us all in her 70 years on the throne with her constant dedication to the service of our country and the Commonwealth. We share the Royal Family’s sorrow and wish them every comfort in their – and our – loss. May she Rest in Peace.”
The following public events will take place over the next few days: on Sunday at 4pm at the Pavilion, Charlwood, a Proclamation will be held which is to welcome the succession of the new King. This ends a short period of celebration which starts with the national Proclamation which will be held at 11am on Saturday. Following the parish's Proclamation, the long period of mourning then resumes.
The Parish Council will hold a short period of reflection, including a minute’s silence and prayer, at the Pavilion in Charlwood on Monday at 6:30pm. A Book of Condolence will be available for those wishing to sign or to write their own message and this will remain at the Pavilion until the day after the funeral.
Those wanting to lay flowers can do so in front of the Pavilion. Further details will be made available through Facebook and the Parish Council’s website.
The next Parish Council, scheduled for Monday 19th September, will now be postponed for a week, until Monday 26th September.
