HRH Prince Philip
|With the sad news of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh it is anticipated that an online Book of Condolence will be opened by Buckingham Palace at www.royal.uk, to which parishioners are directed. |
Neither the Parish Council nor St Thomas’s Church are able to open a physical book of condolence, or to provide a location for floral tributes, and instead suggest a charitable donation. The Duke of Cambridge has recently launched an urgent appeal on behalf of the National Emergencies Trust so that the Trust can help local charities, distribute money and support victims in combatting the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Further information is available at www.nationalemergenciestrust.org.uk.
St Thomas’s Church is, of course, open for private prayer and the lighting of a candle.
Our thoughts and prayers are with members of the Royal Family.
