Neyland: Town Council announces service of remembrance for Queen Elizabeth II

FOLLOWING the death of Her Majesty The Queen on September 8, 2022, Neyland’s community is coming together to commemorate the life of The Queen, and her 70 years of service and devotion to the people of the United Kingdom and The Commonwealth.

It is in the spirit of this service and devotion that Neyland Town Council would like the community to join them to commemorate Her Majesty’s life.

Neyland Town Council are joining together with the churches of Neyland, and Neyland Ladies Choir in a service of remembrance, to take place on Friday, September 16, 2022.

The service will be held at St Clement’s Church, St Clements Road, Neyland, SA73 1SH, and will commence at 6.30pm. People of all faiths, and none, are very welcome to join us.

St Clement’s Church have also made available a Book of Condolence for members of our community to express their thoughts, memories, and condolences on the loss of a much loved monarch. St Clement’s Church will be open every-day between 8.00am and 7.30pm until the evening of Monday, September 19, 2022.

A spokesperson for the Town Council said: “The Queen was much loved in Neyland, which was very apparent, with a total of 18 street parties taking place in the Town during the recent Platinum Jubilee, all of which Neyland Town Council were proud to have supported.

“We invite you to lay flowers for Her Majesty, underneath the Town Crest, at the Neyland Community Hub, John Street. (Please remove all plastic from your flowers before laying them). Long live His Majesty King Charles III.”
