Earlier today, Chalgrove Parish Council made the following announcement:
“It is with great sadness that we join our community in this period of national mourning following the announcement of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II who died yesterday. Chalgrove Parish Council would like to express their sincerest condolences and sympathies to all members of The Royal Family and everybody touched by the loss of our Sovereign. Her Majesty ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history and served as our Head of State with great dignity, composure and compassion. Throughout her Reign, she was a strong and reassuring figurehead for the UK and the Commonwealth during enormous social change and demonstrated unwavering support to many through challenging times. She was truly loved, valued and respected by people across the world and her presence will be greatly missed by the people of Chalgrove. It is with great pride that Chalgrove Parish Council have been able to serve our community during her Reign.
A Book of Condolence has been opened at St Mary’s Church and will be accessible from Monday to Saturday, 9am-3pm, and then again 7.30pm-9pm for those who wish to pay their respects. We thank the church stewards, who have volunteered their time, to enable this to happen.”
