Death of HRH Duke of Edinburgh

It is with deep sadness and regret that I announce, on behalf of Gainford & Langton Parish Council, the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh aged 99. Her Majesty and Prince Philip have been married for nearly 73 years and have know each other since they were children.  The parish council would like to send their condolences to the queen and the royal family on this deeply sad occasion.

Flags will be flown at half mast from St Mary’s Church until the morning of the day following the funeral.

Acting Chair, Cllr Simon Platten
