The Town Mayor was sad to hear the news of the death of His Royal Highness The Prince Philip. As consort to Her Majesty The Queen he has played his part nobly and with full understanding of the responsibility of his role. On behalf of the residents of Llangollen, I extend our deepest sympathy to all members of the Royal Family during this period of national grief.
During these difficult times members of the public are encouraged to write condolences on the Llangollen Remember Facebook page although facilities will be available at the entrance to the Council Chamber to leave personal message. An area has been designated for the laying of floral tributes on Centenary square and the Town Council would be grateful if any tributes use biodegradable wrap.
