Trowell Parish Council Honours Our Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth ll


Trowell Parish Council is extremely saddened to hear of the death of Queen Elizabeth ll. Her loss will be felt across our Borough, as it will be felt across the world. As we mourn, we can also reflect on her 70 years of reign, where she provided a constant presence of strength and warmth to our great nation.

As the country enters a ten-day period of mourning, our flag will be flying at half-mast and a condolence book will be available at the Parish Hall for residents wishing to pay their respects. Over the coming days, the Council will be working to ensure that her majesty is honoured respectfully and appropriately.

The Chair and Members of the Council will not be taking part in any events during the mourning period as a sign of respect. Therefore, the planned full Council meeting has been cancelled at this time.

Messages of Condolence can be left on the official royal website here:
