It is with much sadness that we have learned of the passing of our Sovereign Lady, Queen Elizabeth the Second.
My sadness at this time is shared with Members and Officers of the Council and, I am sure, all residents across the whole of West Lindsey District, as we remember with affection and gratitude the lifetime of service given by our longest-reigning Monarch of 70 years.
As a mark of respect the Union Flag will be flown at half-mast on the Council flagstaff until the morning following the funeral.
A floral tribute has been laid by the Chairman of West Lindsey District Council, Cllr Angela Lawrence, as a mark of respect to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
The floral tribute has been laid at the council’s flag poles at a short ceremony at 10am this morning outside West Lindsey District Council office in Marshall’s Yard, Gainsborough, on behalf of the people of West Lindsey.
If you wish to lay flowers you can do so outside the Guildhall in Gainsborough, outside the Town Hall in Caistor and outside the The Old Police Station in Market Rasen.
Books of condolence have been placed in the reception at the Guildhall in Gainsborough, the Town Council Office in Market Rasen and Caistor Arts & Heritage Centre for residents to express their sadness at this time
