Welcome to Battisford

Death of HRH Prince Philip - Duke of Edinburgh

The parish councillors are saddened to hear about the death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and offer our condolences to HRH Queen Elizabeth and family.

His life was one of public service ranging from his Royal Navy career through to the Duke of Edinburgh scheme, and patronage and the support of many charities.

 "A life well lived, His Royal Highness leaves us with a legacy of indomitable spirit, steadfastness and an unshakable sense of duty”.

 Cllr D Wicking, Chairman Battisford Parish Council
