Please see the below statement from Cllr Margaret North, Mayor of Newquay:
“Newquay Town Council is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and offers its heartfelt condolences to the Royal Family.
As the longest reigning monarch in British history, there are generations of people who have never known life without Queen Elizabeth II. That’s why people around the world will be mourning her passing. As the Mayor of Newquay on behalf of our residents I wish to offer our sincere condolences to Queen Elizabeth’s family at this difficult time. May she rest in peace.
The Council is flying its flag at half-mast apart from during national and local proclamations and in accordance with the civic protocol, as a mark of respect.
A physical book of condolence will be opened and placed within the lobby of St Michael’s Church from Saturday 10 September (open daily 10am-5pm), for anyone who wishes to sign it. A virtual book is also available on the Town Council’s website.
Flowers (without any wrapping or cellophane) can be laid on the green outside of St Michael’s Church. We will remove flowers after the funeral for composting and may remove flowers should this be required during high winds or to manage quantities after a period of time.
A local proclamation will be made at 2pm on Monday 12 September 2022, in St Michael’s Church and any further details of special service(s) will be shared on the Town Council’s Social Media Page over the coming days.”
