   Queen Elizabeth II 1926-2022    9 September, 2022
To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die.
Over the past twenty-four hours many of you will have, firstly, been moved by the events of the day and secondly have had a sense of extreme loss at the death of our monarch, Queen Elizabeth II.
Queen Elizabeth has been a stalwart and cornerstone to our lives, the bedrock of British existence, underpinning the character of this United Kingdom. Some of you may have personal memories, others will have viewed from a distance; most will consider her with a fondness, a mother of the nation, above all a dedicated individual who put this country and its people at the centre of seventy years of service.
I hope you will join me in expressing our deepest condolences to the Royal Family and thanking our Queen Elizabeth II for all that she was and all that she gave. May she sleep at peace in the knowledge (using my Scouting background) of a job well done.
George Devine BEM
Chair, Fen Ditton Parish Council
