Town Mayor Cllr Anne Wignall Expresses great sadness at the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

“It is with the greatest sadness that Ellesmere Town Council learned of the death of Her Majesty The Queen. Throughout her long reign, she was a reassuring symbol of stability and continuity, and a source of comfort, particularly during the recent difficult days of Covid. She is the only monarch that most of us have ever known and it will take some time for us to adjust to our loss of her and to our new life under the reign of a new monarch. Queen Elizabeth was greatly loved, admired, and respected in equal measure and our lives were enriched because of her. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this sad time.”
A book of condolence will be available at Ellesmere Town Hall from 10.30am this morning (9th Sept) and access to the building will be as follows:
10am-4pm Sat
10am-4pm Sunday
Weekdays from 9am until 3pm
We are happy to open the building by prior appointment (01691 622188) should anyone wish to sign that is unable to do so within the normal opening hours and a book will also be open at St Mary’s Church from 8am today throughout daylight hours each day.
