Written by Hitmix Local News on 13 April 2021
Newcastle Borough council says it’s deeply saddened by the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh.
Flags at the local authority’s headquarters at Castle House, the Guildhall and Victoria Hall in Kidsgrove are being flown at half mast. All Green Flags have been removed from parks and will be returned to mast-head on the day following Prince Philip’s funeral.
The Lord Lieutenant of Staffordshire, Ian Dudson, said we will remember the important role he has personally undertaken with many organisations, notably The Duke of Edinburgh Scheme for the development of successive generations of young people.
County council leader Alan White said, The Prince visited Staffordshire on numerous occasions, including to mark the official opening of the flagship i54 South Staffordshire Business Park.
