Death Of HRH The Prince Philip

On behalf of the residents of the parish of Stogursey we would like to offer our heartfelt condolences to HM The Queen and the Royal Family. Our thoughts are with them at this sad time

In line with current restrictions and guidance from the Royal Household, we ask that members of the public do not leave floral tributes in public spaces or gather at monuments at this sad time, to ensure each other’s safety.

The Royal Household has suggested that people could make donations to charity instead, if they wish to do so.

Also in view of public safety in the light of current Covid-19 restrictions, an online book of condolence has been opened to allow people to pay their respects. For more information, visit royal.uk

One Day at a Time

From Monday (March 29), lockdown restrictions will continue to be eased. And while we all want to make the most of the new freedoms, we must be careful too.  Whilst the new freedoms are a much welcome step in the right direction, the next few weeks will determine how the Government decide to move forward with the next phase of the roadmap; we mustn’t do too much too quickly and allow our rates and case numbers to creep up again. 

Enjoy new freedoms, but please stay safe and remember hands face space!

One year on – a day to reflect and remember – 23rd March 2021

One year on – a day to reflect and remember

A minute’s silence will be held by Somerset County Council to mark a National Day of Reflection, remembering those who sadly lost their lives during the pandemic and to show support for everyone who has been bereaved.
Initiated by end of life charity Marie Curie, the National Day of Reflection is due to take place on Tuesday 23 March – the anniversary of the UK going into the first national lockdown.
The flag at County Hall will also fly at half-mast as a sign of respect for all those taken before their time by Covid-19 and for the bereaved they have left behind. County Hall will be lit up in blue and green in the evening to honour the emergency services.
An online ‘Covid reflection’ page has been made available for members of the public to share their own personal reflection messages – which will remain as a permanent reminder of the last year.
Anyone who wishes to take part and would like to add their own reflection message, photo or poem to the ‘Covid reflection’ memorial page can do so by emailing communications@somerset.gov.uk. Messages may also be shared via the County Council’s social media channels on the day.
