 Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh

Leigh Parish Council is extremely saddened by the news of the death of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

Today is a very sad day for the nation and the Commonwealth. His Royal Highness dedicated his life to public duty and was a pillar of support to Her Majesty the Queen. We offer our sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the rest of the Royal Family on behalf of the residents of Leigh at this very difficult time.

One of his many great achievements, and one that has touched so many of us, was setting up the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme in 1956 once describing it as a “do-it-yourself growing up kit”. He spent his life in the public eye and devoted it to our country, channelling his energy into many different areas, making such a positive impact on our society for so many years. We are grateful for his common sense, strength and sense of duty. 

Floral tributes:  Leigh Parish Council asks that floral tributes are not left in the Parish.

Book of Condolence: Given Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to open a book of condolence. The Parish Council suggest that those who wish to do so sign the online book of condolence at www.royal.uk
