Dear Friends and Colleagues
Following the death of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, a Service of Thanksgiving to celebrate the life of His Royal Highness in the presence of HM The Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire will be held at 5:00pm tomorrow at The County Church of St Pauls.
Due to the restrictions of Covid 19, and in accordance with current regulations for communal church services, very limited tickets for attendance are available from the office of St Pauls. In order to remain safe, sadly there will be no admittance without a pre-booked ticket.
Instead we invite you to join us from your homes via You Tube Live Stream at 5pm at https://youtu.be/u2pGGiBRcw0 and an edited version will be available to view after the Service. This means that, although many people will not be able to attend the service in person due to Covid19, the County will be able to join together virtually to celebrate and give thanks for HRH’s life.
Please see the attached press release for further information.
I do hope that you and your family will be able to join me virtually and that you share the link with your friends, family, staff, volunteers so that as many people in Bedfordshire can pay their respects and pray for the life of HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, HM The Queen and the Royal Family.
HM Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire
