Following the sad news about the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8th after 70 years on the throne, our community will help during the period of mourning in the following ways:
The Union Flag on Warcop village green and the flag of St George at St Columba’s church, will fly at half mast until after the funeral date.
The bells of St Columba’s will be rung both for the passing of Her Majesty and the accession of Charles III to the throne.
A book of condolence will be available in St Columba’s church between 9:00am and 6:00pm each day for the coming days. Here is a link to a poster about the book f condolence:
St Columba’s will also be available for private prayer.
