We join with cities and parishes around the UK and Commonwealth in expressing our sadness at the passing of His Royal Highness, the Duke of Edinburgh.

 On behalf of Barwick in Elmet and Scholes Parish Council  I would like to extend my heartfelt condolences to Her Majesty the Queen, and the whole Royal Family at this very sad time.

 We will remember with affection the significant work His Royal Highness undertook during his 73 years as consort of the Her Majesty on behalf of the nation and Commonwealth.

 His considerable achievement and a lasting legacy in founding the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme which has enabled millions of young people around the world to develop important life skills is of great significance.

 We also remember with gratitude his active service with the Royal Navy throughout the Second World War.
