We have been advised by Torridge District Council that they are asking people not to gather together or lay wreaths or flowers due to Covid-19 concerns. The Town Council is arranging a floral tribute to His Royal Highness Prince Philip on behalf of the Town Council and the community of Great Torrington. This will be placed in view at the Town Hall.
The Duke of Edinburgh – 1921 – 2021
On behalf of the Town Council, I would like to express my sincere condolences following the announcement of the death of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
The Civic Flags will be flown at half-mast and a web-based book of condolence is available below. Unfortunately, due to Covid restrictions we are unable to have condolence books in the usual format but we encourage anyone wishing to pass on their condolences to write it down and pass to the Town Council and we will compile a book accordingly. If anyone wishes to lay flowers, please do so immediately in front of the Town Hall on the cobbled area.
We will continue to keep the community informed of any further developments.
Cllr Keeley Allin, Mayor of Great Torrington – Friday 9th April 2021
