Northumberland residents’ views sought on permanent memorial to Queen Elizabeth II
September 21, 2022
People in Northumberland are being encouraged to give their views on a permanent memorial in the county to commemorate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
On Thursday, September 8, the county joined the rest of the nation in mourning, with many residents signing books of condolence and laying flowers.
Following the Royal funeral there are now plans for a permanent memorial or memorials in Northumberland to forever remember her in the county she often visited. Residents can have their say and let the council know their ideas by taking part in a short online consultation at nland.cc/Memorial
The survey will only take a couple of minutes. It is open for four weeks until Wednesday, October 19th. Councillor Glen Sanderson, Leader of Northumberland County Council, said: “I’m sure we all felt the shock and sadness of the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and I think the events of the past fortnight showed us once again how much love there was and still is for her.
“Queen Elizabeth II touched the hearts and lives of so many people and we want to ensure this memorial is a place for all; a place where our residents and visitors can go to remember this great monarch.
“I do hope people can spare a few moments to let us know their thoughts. The results will be invaluable in helping us decide what form any memorial or memorials should take.”
