“Sad news, Her Majesty The Queen served our nation for so many years with grace and dignity. Many in leadership roles can learn from her outstanding duty and behaviour.
King Charles III has been in waiting a long time and the nation will look to him for wisdom and guidance. We thank you Queen Elizabeth II for your service. Long live the King.”
Hexham Mayor Derek Kennedy and Hexham Town Council.
