Book of condolence and floral tributes
Northleach residents may wish to pay their personal tributes to Her Majesty. A public book of condolence will be open to sign at the Church of St Peter and St Paul Northleach from Friday 9 September. The church will be open every day from 8am to 6.30pm.
The book will be closed at the end of the day on Tuesday 20 September. At the end of the mourning period we will be archiving all the condolence books for future generations to see.
Floral tributes to HM Queen Elizabeth II may be laid at the flagpole of the Council Offices at the Westwoods Centre. In accordance with the Royal Families wishes, please do not leave plastic. As a mark of respect for Her Majesty, the flag is being flown at half mast.
Further information about the funeral and the Royal Family’s official online book of condolence will be found in due course at https://www.royal.uk/
We are currently reviewing planned council meetings and other events scheduled during the official period of mourning, to ensure we are conducting ourselves appropriately at this time of great sadness. The meeting due to take place on 21 September has been postponed.
