Chairman’s Statement passing of Queen Elizabeth II

HM Queen Elizabeth II
1926 – 2022

Chairman’s Statement:

It is with immense sadness that Bradwell Parish Council has heard of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Along with so many others, our reaction is one of profound sorrow for all the members of the Royal Family and to give thanks for a life well lived and much admired.

Bradwell Parish Council offer our heartfelt and very deepest sympathy to the Royal Family. They have lost, a mother, a grandmother, and a great grandmother; as a nation we have lost one of the most remarkable figures of the last century.

Throughout her life the Queen demonstrated exemplary dedication and commitment to serving the United Kingdom and the Commonwealth and supported countless organisations and charities.

Here in Bradwell, the Queen will always be remembered for her humility and duty to her country, which helped to foster the genuine love and affection in which she was held by all of us.
