Statement from the Mayor of Oakengates
It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, on the 8th of September 2022.
As the Mayor of Oakengates and on behalf of the people represented by Oakengates Town Council I wish to pay our deepest condolences to the Royal Family.
In our history, there is nothing comparable to the wave of sorrow that so many feel at the loss of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
It is sorrow not alone for the loss of the head of a great Nation and Commonwealth but a collective sorrow for the loss to the world of a great woman, a shining example of service and devotion who used every influence for what was right and good and true.
Councillor Stephen Reynolds
Mayor of Oakengates
