Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II ~ 1926-2022
It is with great sadness that Kingsley Parish Council has learnt of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
We know how the loss of our sovereign will be felt deeply and we join nationwide mourning as we fly the Union Flag at half-mast.
A message from the Chairman, Cllr Judith Critchley:
“Buckingham Palace has announced the sad passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday 8th September 2022. Her majesty passed away peacefully this afternoon at Balmoral Castle. On behalf of Kingsley Parish Council, I extend our deepest condolences to the Royal Family at this difficult time.
The Queen had recently celebrated 70 years on the throne, was a constant presence, carrying out her duties with grace and dedication, whilst providing unfaltering public service.
The impact of our longest-serving monarch will not be forgotten and we will continue to take inspiration from Her Majesty and her commitment to the service of this great country and to bettering the lives of others.
May we all learn to serve others like Her Majesty, with compassion, dignity and respect.
May she rest in peace.
God save the King.”
If you wish to make a floral tribute, please leave unwrapped flowers on the war memorial of Kingsley Cemetery. Flowers will be removed on the morning after the funeral and composted.
