Tenterden Town Council would like to convey our sincerest condolences to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh today, 9th April 2021.
The loss and sorrow of the longest-serving Royal Consort in British history, will be felt all over the world.
The Union Flags at the Tenterden Town Hall are being flown at half-mast as a mark of respect.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, no books of condolence will be available for the public to sign at the Town Hall, but the public will be able to sign the national e-book of condolence here. Public are also welcome to post any letters of condolence through the Town Hall letterbox and these will be collated and forwarded onto Kent History & Archives Centre after the period of mourning.
During this time the Royal Family ask that members of the public consider making a donation to a charity instead of leaving floral tributes in memory of The Duke of Edinburgh. However, for those that wish to leave floral tributes, we have made arrangements for them to be laid at East Cross Garden near the memorial stone during the mourning period. Please observe social distancing whilst placing the flowers, and help us by removing the packaging.
The flowers will remain until after the funeral at which point we will compost them and use them in the planting of a memorial tree.
