Following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, Cllr Simon Clark, Mayor of the Borough of Swale, said:

“It is with enormous sadness that we learned of the death of Queen Elizabeth II, and I would like to express our sincere condolences on behalf of Swale Borough Council and the people of the Borough of Swale to the entire Royal Family.

“The Queen was known across the world for her strong sense of duty and commitment to serving the country and the Commonwealth.

“Her Platinum Jubilee showed the respect and admiration we had for her tireless work, and as we mourn her passing we must reflect on how fortunate we have been to live through her reign.”

Books of Condolence are open at Swale House, Faversham Town Council offices and Sheppey Gateway to allow local people to pay their respects 10am to 4pm weekdays.

Floral tributes will be laid at the war memorials in Sittingbourne, Sheerness and Faversham.

Also, as a mark of respect, Civic and council events and meeting have been cancelled until after the funeral.

The Proclamation for the new Sovereign took place at St Michael’s Church, High Street, Sittingbourne, on Sunday 11 September.
