Ceremony to mark the national Moment of Reflection.
As we are all aware, our ruling monarch of 70 years, Queen Elizabeth Ⅱ has sadly passed away. As a nation we are currently in a period of national mourning and the Queens funeral will be held on Monday 19th September.
On Sunday the 18th September at 8.00pm the nation will unite in ‘A Moment of Reflection. on the eve of the funeral of her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth
It is our intention to hold a brief vigil on the Village Green on Sunday evening for those who want to attend and show their respects and involve themselves in this nationwide event.
By 19.55 pm members of our community will gather on the village Green, I will say a few words and then at 8.00 pm we shall hold a minute’s silence.
During the Minute we will have an opportunity, in silence, to reflect on the lifetime of service which Her late Majesty devoted to the United Kingdom, the Realms and Territories and to the Commonwealth.
This is an open invitation to all the community, visiting families and friends.
It only seems a short while ago since we were all on the Village Green celebrating Her Majesty’s Jubilee, here again we have the opportunity to show our respects and be part of history.
