Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 1926 - 2022
We continue to mourn the loss and celebrate a most remarkable reign. A reign in which Her Majesty was driven by duty, uniting a kingdom with dignity, honour and grace.
As you will be aware, it has been announced that The Queen’s state funeral will take place at Westminster Abbey on Monday 19th September at 11.00am. The day has been approved as a bank holiday by HRH King Charles III and, as a result, we write to confirm that the Association has agreed to classify Monday 19th September as an additional Bank Holiday for staff.
We are most grateful to our staff at our Housing with Extra Care schemes who will continue to work on Monday providing afternoon tea and cake for residents and staff.
We continue to encourage you to send messages of condolence to the Royal family through https://www.royal.uk/send-message-condolence and we understand that selected messages of condolence will be passed onto the Royal Family and held in the Archives for prosperity.
We continue to extend our deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to the Royal Family at this time.
