Message from our Chairman, Cllr Malc Spray:
Laneham Parish Council are deeply saddened to hear of the death of HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh and would like to extend our deepest condolences to HRH Queen Elizabeth II and the Royal Family.
His life was one of remarkable service to the United Kingdom for more than 70 years. He served with distinction as an officer in the Royal Navy in the second World War, including in the Indian Ocean and during the allied landings in Sicily. He served as the longest Consort in history by the side of HRH The Queen since she ascended the throne in 1952, accompanying her in her duties around the UK and across the globe, representing the UK until his retirement in 2017 at the age of 96.

HRH Prince Philip helped create the prestigious Duke of Edinburg Award scheme which began in 1956, with the aim of assisting young people to gain essential skills, experience, confidence and resilience to successfully navigate adult life. He became the UK president of the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) in 1961, and remained President emeritus. He supported over 780 organisations, was a keen sportsman and a skilled equestrian.
We hope we can speak on behalf of Laneham parishioners in showing our respect at this time to our nations' Royal Family.
