message from Shelford Parish Council

for one another, and I'm sure the same will be true in our village over this period of official mourning.
A book of condolence has been opened in Shelford Church, and the Church will be open at the following times for those wishing to sign it and pay
- 10am to 12pm, and 2pm to 4pm
Saturday 10th thru Friday 16th
- 10am to 12pm, 2pm to 4pm, and 6pm to 7pm
A National Condolence Online Book is also available to sign at www.royal.uk
If you are unable to attend the Church but would like to add your respects to the book of condolence, please email
your message to firstname.lastname@example.org and it will transcribed into the book for you.
As a mark of respect the Union Flag has been lowered to half-mast at the Church, and people are also invited to
