The Councillors and Clerk of Plaistow and Ifold Parish Council are deeply saddened at the news of the death of His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh. Our thoughts are with the Royal Family at this time.

As a mark of respect, the Union Flag will be flown at half-mast outside Holy Trinity, Plaistow for the duration of the period of official mourning.

A Book of Condolence will be opened in the Winterton Hall, Plaistow on Saturday 10th April. The Hall lobby will be open daily between the hours of 10am and 4pm, until Sunday 18th April. The community is invited to sign the Book of Condolence between these times; however, they are asked to use their own pen, due to Covid-19. Please wait outside the hall to allow anyone already signing the Book of Condolence time to finish. Please enter the lobby area alone, or with members of your household/support bubble. Please ahead to the most up-to-date Covid-19 social distancing rules and wear a face mask; hand sanitiser will be made available.

There are also online books of condolence on both the Royal Family’s website, or via Chichester District Council’s website,

The community is respectfully asked to leave any floral and other tributes at the foot of the flagpole at Holy Trinity, Plaistow. Tributes left at any other location will be moved by designated representatives of the Parish Council and/or Church to the correct location.

10 June 1921 – 9 April 2021
