Residents are invited to a special service at St Mary’s Church in Stafford this weekend to remember the life of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
The Mayor of Stafford Borough, Councillor Philip Leason, His Majesty’s Lord-Lieutenant of Staffordshire, Ian Dudson CBE, and other civic leaders will be attending the memorial service on Sunday (18th) at 12.30pm.
A choir will lead hymns during the memorial service to commemorate the life of Queen Elizabeth II and the service will conclude with the National Anthem ‘God Save the King’ being sung.
Councillor Leason said: “It will be lovely to see the community come together to remember the life and outstanding work of the late Queen Elizabeth II.
“Her Majesty was a truly inspirational figure and a wonderful monarch who served our country at home and abroad during her 70 year reign. I would like to invite people to come along to the memorial service on Sunday at St Mary’s Church to be a part of what will be a very moving and emotional experience.”
People will also have the opportunity to leave their own personal tributes to Her Majesty in the book of condolence in the church following the service.
And Stafford Borough Council are encouraging residents to observe the one-minute silence at 8pm on Sunday as part of the national moment of reflection - with details of both events on the borough council website at www.staffordbc.gov.uk
