Book of Condolence Online

In normal times, Sandgate Parish Council would have joined with local authorities across the country in opening a formal book of condelence for people to sign to pay their respects to Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, who died on Friday.

However Government guidance issued today (11 April) makes it clear that we should not do so at this time, but instead ask people who wish to do so to use the online book of condolence at the Royal Website.

A formal letter of regret and condolence will be sent on behalf of Sandgate Parish Council on Monday, and a minutes silence will be held at the start of the only formal Parish Council meeting this week of the Resources Committee on Tuesday.

The Union Flag will continue to fly at half mast until 8am on the morning of 18th April, in line with the national protocol.
