We are deeply saddened to hear that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has passed away.
We would like to pay tribute to Her Majesty’s life-long commitment to public service and unwavering dignity as the longest-reigning monarch in history. Our thoughts are with His Majesty The King and his Family at this sad time.
There will be a County Memorial Service at The Abbey, Shrewsbury at 6pm on the evening before the funeral, followed by a National Moment of Silent Reflection at 8pm.
Flags will fly at half-mast from the day of death to the day after the funeral, save being raised for the proclamation of the new King.
The Lady Eleanor Function Room at Whittington Castle is open for those who wish to sign the Parish Council book of Condolence. The room will be open from 9am-5pm, until the State Funeral and for 7 days following.
The Proclamation in Shropshire of a new King is expected to be Saturday at 12.30pm, at the Bandstand in the Quarry, Shrewsbury.
The official location to host the laying of floral tributes is Shrewsbury Castle.
