HRH Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh 1921 – 2021

It is with deep sadness and regret that we announce, on behalf of Bishopton Parish Council, the passing of His Royal Highness Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, aged 99.

The Parish Council would like to send their condolences to HM The Queen and the Royal Family on behalf of the people of Bishopton on this deeply sad occasion.

The flag on the church is flying at half mast and will do so until the morning of the day following the funeral.

We cannot issue a book of condolence due to Covid restrictions.

There will be an online book of condolence at Darlington Town Hall, which will be opened on the Borough Council’s website soon.

We will provide more information, once this has been received from official channels.

Les Foggett

Clerk to Bishopton Parish Council
