On behalf of the Parish Council and the residents of the Parish of Tormarton.

It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh today, Friday, 9 April, 2021.

His Royal Highness had been at The Queen’s side for more than 70 years, and as well as providing immeasurable support and strength throughout Her Majesty’s reign, he made an invaluable contribution to the country, commonwealth, and indeed the world, and was very much loved and respected by so many.

During his long and eventful life Prince Philip had touched lives of so many people in a variety of positive ways. Through his service to Britain during the Second World War, and his on going commitment to support our armed forces during the seven decades that followed. Or his charitable work, the epitome of which can be seen through eponymous Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme, that has touched the lives of over 6 million young adults throughout the commonwealth. Not to mention in over 20,000 of his official solo engagements that he had carried out since 1952.

Above all though he will always be remembered for his unwavering support of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II throughout her reign.

On behalf of the Parish of Tormarton I would like to convey our deepest condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and her family on their sad loss.

Simon Stevens

Chairman of Tormarton Parish Council
