HER MAJESTY QUEEN ELIZABETH II
On behalf of Briston Parish Council I would like to express our profound sadness at the passing of our Monarch, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and extend to all of her family our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers.
Her Majesty had been our Head of State for most if not all of our lives and we join the whole country, and indeed the world, in reflecting upon and giving thanks for a remarkable life and reign. Her dedication to duty, service for others and vibrant faith in Christ will long remain an example to us all. As a village, our own celebrations for the Platinum Jubilee earlier this year were testimony to the unique way in which the Queen both united and represented us.
As we continue in this period of national mourning, a Book of Condolence will be opened at All Saints Church from Saturday 10th September, in which parishioners may write their own tributes and expressions of grief.
Thank God for a good Queen! Long live and God save the King!
Matthew Pickhaver (Chairman, Briston Parish Council)
