His Royal Highness Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh
It is with great sadness that I write these words for HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
He has been a loyal and hard working servant to the Queen and country, and his passing is a great loss to both his family and this country.
As Chairman to Balderton Parish Council, and on behalf of the residents of Balderton, I place on record my condolences to the Queen and Royal Family.
There is an online Book of Condolences and the web-site link is below for anyone wishing to use this facility:
