Queen Elizabeth II

Published: 09 September 2022

It is with great sadness that Crowhurst Parish Council has received the news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.  On behalf of Crowhurst Parish we extend our deepest sympathies to all members of the Royal Family.  Our thoughts are with them at this time.

Flags at St Georges Church and Bowerland Corner will be flown at half-mast until 8am on the morning following the funeral. We politely ask that any other flag flown in the Parish at this time is also lowered for the period.

Following the sad news of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Crowhurst Parish Council have implemented our Operation Bridge Plans. A book of condolence has been opened in St Georges church and floral contributions can be left in the churchyard in a dedicated location opposite the door.

Please see the parish website crowhurstonline.uk and watch email for further information regarding church open times.

A proclamation will be held on Sunday at 4pm at the Church should anyone wish to attend. The proclamation is for the new King and starts on Saturday 10th September, at this point union flags should be flown at full mast and lowered at 1pm on Sunday to half. Only flags in 'sight' of the proclamation location should remain at full mast until after the statement is made.
