A message of condolence from Barkham Parish Council

Barkham Parish Council today joins the rest of the country in mourning following the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh.

Council Chairman, Pamela Stubbs said: On behalf of the residents of Barkham and the officers and members of the Parish Council, I would like to express my deepest sorrow at the death of the Duke of Edinburgh who has been consort (companion to Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II) for over 60 years.

In 2009 he became the longest serving British consort and in addition to playing a prominent role in accompanying The Queen, he was also patron or president of a number of organisations and created The Duke of Edinburgh Award in 1956 which continues to recognise the achievements of young people.
