PASSING OF HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN
South Lakeland has been paying tribute to the most remarkable Queen that our country has ever known, following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
A number of flags located around South Lakeland will be flown at half-mast until 8am on the day following the State Funeral, except while the proclamation of the new King is made.
Condolence books will also be situated around Cumbria in key community buildings. The list of locations will be available shortly via the Cumbria County Council website.
Condolences can also be left online on the Buckingham Palace e-Book, which can be found on the Buckingham Palace website.
The official proclamation will be made at St James’s Palace at 11 am today, then at the Royal Exchange in the City of London.
In Cumbria, the County proclamation will be held in Carlisle, followed by district proclamations in Barrow, Carlisle, Kendal, Penrith, Whitehaven and Workington.
A proclamation will be made in South Lakeland outside Kendal Town Hall.
Details of exact timings will be confirmed shortly and residents and any visitors to South Lakeland are advised to visit the South Lakeland District Council (SLDC) or Cumbria County Council websites for more details.
