Patchway Town Council comes together to commemorate the life of the late HRH Queen Elizabeth II
On Friday 9th September, as the world stood in shock at the news of the passing of our Queen, Town Councillors and Town Council staff came together to take part in a service in her memory.
Nine Councillors, their families and Patchway Town Council’s staff were able to lay flowers of remembrance in Scott Park in front of the war memorial. This was added to by fellow residents who were also mourning the loss of our Sovereign over the course of the week.
Mayor of Patchway, Cllr Dayley Lawrence, had this to say on the service, ‘It is really nice to see our Councillors and staff come together to pay their respect. It is important at times like this, we as a Council lead the way and show our residents an united front as that’s how we become stronger as a community. Many of our residents have signed the book of condolence or have laid tributes to Queen Elizabeth II in Scott Park. We have seen our community come together again despite the loss we have all suffered’.
Patchway Town Council’s book of condolence was available for all residents to sign immediately after the passing of HRH Queen Elizabeth II and residents had taken the opportunity to express wishes of thanks to the late sovereign. The Town Council were also very quick to lead the way on communicating the protocol for the Town as well the proclamation of our new Sovereign, King Charles III which was read by the Mayor of Patchway.
The Patchway book of remembrance has had an entry for Queen Elizabeth II and this is located within Callicroft House on Rodway Road.
