FLORAL TRIBUTES

The gathering of large numbers of people is not encouraged under the COVID-19 advice and therefore there is no single point of focus for the laying of flowers at this time.

 

MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR, CLLR. JOY AITMAN, AND THE LEADER OF THE COUNCIL, CLLR.LUCI ASHBOURNE

We are truly saddened to hear in the news today of the passing of HRH Prince Philip.

Her Majesty the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited Witney in 1959 when they visited Early’s Blanket Mill.

You will notice flags at half mast from Public Buildings which will fly this way until after the funeral.

On behalf of the Town Council and the people of the town of Witney, we offer our sincere condolences to the Queen and other members of the Royal Family at this very sad time.
