"God save the King"

Cllr Margaret Notley, Mayor of Stevenage

“I would like to express my sincere condolences to the Royal Family on behalf of Stevenage Borough Council.

HRH Queen Elizabeth II has been head of state for Great Britain and the Commonwealth realms for 70 years. Her extraordinary commitment and loyalty to our nation and beyond will be sorely missed.

It is only right that we express our deepest thanks to her for this life of service to our country.

I recall meeting Queen Elizabeth in 2012 when she visited Stevenage to officially open a brand-new maternity unit at the Lister Hospital. I was honoured to spend a short time with her during the visit and delighted to see so many people from schoolchildren to pensioners waiting to get a glimpse of her.

This reflects the town’s respect and admiration for her and the dedication she has shown the nation and Commonwealth. She officially opened Stevenage New Town and it was conceived and has grown in line with her long period in royal service. As she developed as our monarch, so has our town and it’s fitting to have major roads such as Queensway, named after her.

The council has arranged a number of ways to acknowledge the death HRH Queen Elizabeth II at this poignant time. Council buildings will lower flags to half-mast. There will be detailed information on our website and social media channels for residents who wish to share their condolences. Our thoughts are with all of the Royal Family at this sad time.”

Leader of Stevenage Borough Council
