His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh
Sonning Parish Council today joins the rest of the country in mourning following the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.
Parish Council Chairman Cllr Tony Farnese said: ‘On behalf of the residents of Sonning and the officers and members of the Parish Council, I would like to express my deepest sorrow at the death of the Duke of Edinburgh who has been consort (companion to Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II) for over 60 years.
In 2009 he became the longest serving British consort and in addition to playing a prominent role in accompanying The Queen, he was also patron or president of a number of organisations and created The Duke of Edinburgh Award in 1956 which continues to recognise the achievements of young people’.
We will provide further details in due course about a book of condolence.
Sonning Support, is the new name for what was the Sonning Covid-19 Community Support Group, originally set up by the Sonning Parish Council in March 2020. They are an independant, informal group of local volunteers who joined together to provide help and support to those people who need it during these unprecedented times. If you need help in collecting a prescription from the chemist, buying food from the shops, walking a dog or other errands then do get in touch - click on the link above to contact them.
Volunteers do not expect payment for their time - the beneficiary is only expected to pay the cost of their shopping, prescriptions or other such expenses that they would cover normally.
If you have any concerns or queries please contact Trefor Fisher via email to email@example.com or 07789 880072.
