On behalf of Leyburn Town Council and the residents and businesses of our parish I express our deepest sadness at the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and give our sincerest condolences to the Royal Family.

Our hearts and thoughts along with those of the rest of the country are with her family.  As a Council and as a community we will pause at this time to mark the passing of Her Majesty the Queen, with gratitude for her extraordinary life and reign, which will be remembered with deep affection by us all.

As a mark of respect the Council is now flying the union flag at half mast in the Market Square in Leyburn.

A book of condolence has been opened at St Matthew’s Church, Leyburn as well as County Hall in Northallerton for the public to also give their own tributes to the Queen.
Along with the books of condolence, an ebook is also available via Buckingham Palace’s website at https://www.royal.uk/
The Town Council would like to suggest that any floral tributes can be placed at the base of the flagpole in the Market Square. Please can any tributes be placed with the plastic wrapping removed, so these can be composted as the Queen wished after the mourning period.

The monthly Town Council meeting will be rescheduled to Monday 26th September.

Councillor Mandy Spenceley
