The Parish Council received the news of the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh with sadness. We offer our sincere condolences and deepest sympathy to HM the Queen and the Royal family at this time. Due to current circumstances it will not be possible to open a physical book of condolence, however, virtual versions are available at South Gloucestershire Council. The South Gloucestershire Council’s book of condolence can be found on their website here and we also wish to signpost residents to the online book of condolence organised by Buckingham Palace on the Royal Family website. You can also post an online condolence and see events on the St Peters Church Facebook page.
Local churches will be holding services of Requiem Eucharist. Please visit their website.
In lieu of placing flowers, Buckingham Palace has asked that people consider donating to one of the charities with which Prince Philip was associated. If people do wish to place flowers, South Gloucestershire Council will make a place available in both Page Park in Staple Hill and in Kingswood Park. Alternatively, in recognition of his distinguished military service and long association with the forces, they may wish to place flowers at their local war memorial. The Council will leave any flowers left safely in place for a period before relocating them to an appropriate, public location.
