HM The Queen

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

1926 – 2022

It is with great sadness that Lewes Town Council has learnt of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. On behalf of the townspeople of Lewes, and councillors and officers of Lewes Town Council, I offer our deepest condolences to the Royal Family.
 
 
The Union flag was flown at half-mast on the Town Hall flagpole upon learning the news, and will remain at half-mast until the day after the funeral of Her Majesty, excluding days of Proclamation. Details of how to pay your respects to Her Majesty are available below.
 
 
 
Her Majesty, during her reign and especially this, her Platinum Jubilee year, has been an inspiration to her people. Our thoughts are with her son the King, and all his family members during this time of great sadness and change. God save the King.
 
 
Councillor Shirley-Anne Sains, Mayor of Lewes
