Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

Yesterday we received the very sad news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Speaking on behalf of the Parish Council, Chair Mike Oakes commented;

“I know that so many of you, like me, will be deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Her decades of steadfast service to our country and to the Commonwealth have been exceptional. She has been a shining example to everyone in public office and an inspiration to so many people across the world. 
We join the nation in nine days of mourning and send our deepest condolences to The Royal Family at this difficult time. This is a very sad day for our country, one which most of us will not have experienced before and I know that we will rally together to support each other as we take in this news. God save The King”.

Leeds City Council have also issued a statement and provided an opportunity to sign an on line book of condolence which you can view here.

Further information in relation to specific initiatives in Aberford village will follow.
