It is with great sadness that we have today learnt of the death of The Duke of Edinburgh Prince Philip, who served and supported his country over many decades with the upmost dedication and distinction. He was a much-loved member of our monarchy and will be sorely missed.

On behalf of the people of Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge, I wish to convey our deepest sympathy and thoughts to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the Royal Family at this terribly sad time.

Councillor Mike Facey
The Mayor of Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge


Condolence Book

Once the period of mourning has ended, Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Town Council will print the book of condolence and have it bound to be kept in the Town Council’s archives.

A letter of condolence will be issued to Buckingham Palace from the Mayor of Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge and will advise that a Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge book of condolence has been made.

In line with current restrictions and guidance from the Royal Household, we are asking that people do not leave floral tributes in public spaces or gather at monuments to ensure each other’s safety. The Royal Household has suggested making a donation to charity instead.  Should you wish to leave flowers, we would kindly ask that you remove any form of wrapping from the flowers before laying them, thus avoiding the need to put them into landfill. At the end of the mourning period the flowers will be removed and composted.

The designated areas for laying flowers are:

Below the flag pole at Old Station Approach, Burnham-on-Sea

Below the flag pole, Market Street, Highbridge.
