The people of Sandwell are deeply saddened at the news of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh
The Worshipful The Mayor of Sandwell Councillor Dr Ann Jaron said:
On behalf of Sandwell Council and the people of Sandwell, I would like to extend my sympathies to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family.
The Duke of Edinburgh was a dedicated public servant and faithful companion of Her Majesty and we, along with people across the country and indeed the world, will keenly feel his loss.
He will be remembered through his charitable work and especially through the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme, which thousands of children in Sandwell and across the country have taken part in since its inception in the 1950s.
The Deputy Leader of the Council, Councillor Maria Crompton said:
Along with the Mayor, on behalf of the citizens of Sandwell, I have written a letter of condolence to The Queen, offering our deepest sympathies and to convey the sadness that is being felt.
Our thoughts are with Her Majesty and the Royal family at this time.
An online book of condolence is available for the people of Sandwell to sign. Messages of condolence will be gathered and sent to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal family at a later date.
