Remembering His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh in Holmes Chapel

The Parish Council was deeply saddened to hear the news of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh on Friday 9th April 2021.


In non-pandemic times, the Parish Council would have organised a book of condolence for residents to sign. However, the current advice is for residents to express their condolences via the online book of condolence being hosted by the Royal Family. This can be accessed here: https://www.royal.uk/condolence


A letter of condolence is being sent on behalf of the Parish Council from the Chairman Cllr Brian Bath.


The computers at Holmes Chapel library are available for any residents who do not have access to a computer, but would like to leave a message of condolence. Please contact the library to book use of the computer. Please call the library on 01477 689 550.


St Luke's Church tolled the bells 99 times over the weekend and the flag will fly at half mast until Saturday.


St Luke's Church and Holmes Chapel Methodist Church will both be open for private, individual prayer and reflection on Saturday 17th April between 9am and 2pm.
