The Chair of South Gloucestershire Council, Cllr June Bamford, has today expressed great sadness following the announcement of the death of HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh:
“On behalf of all councillors and staff of South Gloucestershire Council, I would like to say how deeply saddened we are on hearing the news that HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh has died. We send our sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and all members of the Royal Family at this difficult time.
“I know the people of South Gloucestershire will want to pay their own personal tributes to someone who has played such an important role in our country’s history and therefore, a book of condolence has been opened online organised by Buckingham Palace which is available on the Royal Family website.”
