COMMUNITY INVITED TO EXPRESS CONDOLENCES FOR HER MAJESTY THE QUEEN
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson has invited the community to express their condolences for Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II at his office, 13 Fitzroy Street, Tamworth.
Mr Anderson said the community had expressed an enormous amount of sadness over the passing of the Queen on Friday with many sharing their thoughts in private and on social media.
“The passing of Queen Elizabeth has affected many in our community and I know there will be many more days and weeks spent reflecting on her 70 years of service,” Mr Anderson said.
“The Queen touched many in our community on her visit to Tamworth in 1977. Many have shared personal experiences of that visit, seeing her open Ray Walsh House and meeting local school children and community members.
“Many have contacted my office wishing to share their condolences with the Royal Family and I have made a condolence book available in my office should anyone wish to share those condolences.
“These messages will be sent to Buckingham Palace where they will be archived by the Commonwealth and may be displayed at its national institutions, cementing our community’s strong relationship with the Queen.”
Community members wishing to sign Mr Anderson’s condolences book can do so between 9am and 5pm on business days prior to the 23rd of September.
“While we mourn her passing, we give thanks for a lifetime of public duty to the Crown. The Commonwealth, and to the people of our country, our state, and our region,” Mr Anderson added.
“May she rest in peace. God save the King.”
