Condolences on death of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

Stoke Bliss Group Parish Council wish to extend deepest condolences to Her Majesty, The Queen, on the death of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

We recognise with grateful thanks the life a man who was a shining example of what it means to put others before self. The loss to our country is very great and we hope to mirror in some small way, by public service, that sense of duty which is so important in upholding all the values embodied in the role of service which Prince Philip unstintingly performed throughout his life.

Our thoughts and prayers are offered for Her Majesty the Queen and her family at this sad time.


Councillor Burgess Adams (Chair of Stoke Bliss Group Parish Council) on behalf of Stoke Bliss Group Parish Council.
