We have tragically lost the only Monarch most of us have ever known during our lifetimes. Throughout her long reign, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II devoted her life to the service of her people, as she promised she would when she acceded to the throne more than 70 years ago. Her reign has included difficult and turbulent times, during which the Queen has been the nation’s rock, always present and always stable, providing continuity and reassuring us all. It is impossible to overestimate how much we will miss her. The townsfolk of Tavistock send our sincere condolences to the members of the Royal Family at this sad time. Our thoughts are with you.
Councillor Paul Ward
Tavistock Town Mayor
