Tingewick Parish Council are saddened by the news of the death of Prince Philip. Our condolences, thoughts and prayers are with the Queen and the Royal Family.
We stand alongside the nation and indeed the world as we all come to terms with the news. We recognise the immense contribution to public duty and service that Prince Philip made, together with everything he did for our County and for the nation as a whole.
The flag will fly at half-mast at St Mary Magdalene Church in Tingewick from 9 April until after the funeral has taken place. We will observe the one-minute silence on Saturday 17 April at 3pm.
In line with national guidance, due to the pandemic, we are not able to host and open physical books of condolence as it is not safe to do so. We would however encourage those who would like to share a message to sign Buckingham Palace’s online book of condolence.
If you are without access to the internet you can call the Buckinghamshire Council contact centre, or to pop into the library and staff will help you to submit your message.
Additionally, in line with The Royal Family’s wishes, we advise residents not to leave any floral tributes and instead to make a charitable donation.
Buckinghamshire Council will be broadcasting a memorial service led by the Bishop of Buckingham on Friday 16 April which can be accessed via their website when the details have been confirmed.
