HM The Queen
It is with great sadness that Southwell Town Council marks the passing of our late Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth II. On behalf of the people of Southwell, Councillors join our fellow countrymen and people across the globe, as we remember with affection and gratitude the lifetime of service given by our longest serving Monarch.
Many people in the town will want to pay their respects. Residents who wish to lay flowers are invited to do so at the West door of Southwell Minster. Southwell Town Council respectfully requests that flowers only are laid, rather than toys, candles or any other items, and that plastic flower bags are removed and disposed of in litter bins or taken home.
People may wish to sign one of two Books of Condolence in the town. These will be placed in the Minster Church and in the Town Council offices at the Burgage. The books will be available for signing from Monday to Friday between 09.00 and 15.00; and Saturday between 09.00 and 15.00, until the day after the state funeral. Alternatively, people may prefer to sign the Palace electronic book of condolence, which is available: https://www.royal.uk/books-condolence
