It is with great sadness that we learnt of the death of Her Majesty the Queen
His Worshipful the Mayor of Tunbridge Wells, Councillor Godfrey Bland said:
'It is a sad day for us, for the Country, and the Commonwealth, that our dearly loved Queen has passed away.
'For more than 70 years, and the first British monarch to achieve this extraordinary milestone, Her Majesty The Queen served her peoples with grace and dignity. She has been a constant figure in a changing world. The enormous crowds at her Platinum Jubilee celebrations were but a small indication of the love and respect we have felt for her.
'God bless you, Ma'am, and thank you.'
