HRH Duke of EdinburghThe Parish Council and people of Holme St. Cuthberts wish to extend their sympathies to the Queen and her family at the loss of Prince Philip.

Unfortunately, in order to comply with COVID-19 restrictions in place, and to reduce the risk of transmission, The Royal Family have respectfully asked that no Books of Condolence are to be made available in public buildings for people to sign in person.  However, a Book of Condolence is available online at the Royal Website.

During the current public health situation, the Royal Household is also asking the public not to lay floral tributes.  As an alternative, members of the public may wish to make a donation to one of HRH charities, or a charity of their choice.
