From Stanstead Abbotts Parish Council
It is with great sadness that we received the news that Her Majesty the Queen died at Balmoral Castle on the afternoon of 8th September 2022. Our deepest sympathies go out to her family.
Her Majesty the Queen devoted her life to this nation and was a symbol of unity and strength for us all. For many of us Her Majesty the Queen was the only monarch we have known and her experience and wisdom will be sorely missed in the years ahead.
Many of you will want to share your own messages and a book of condolence will be available in the Ashlea Room at Stanstead Abbotts Parish Hall from Friday afternoon (opening times will be confirmed shortly).
The Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire has an online book of condolence available online here and East Herts District Council will have a book of condolence available from Friday afternoon at the council offices in Hertford and Bishops Stortford .
I hope that we can all find comfort in the memory of this great woman who united a nation as our Queen for more than 70 years.
