Graveney with Goodnestone Parish Council wish to express our sadness at hearing of the death of the Duke of Edinburgh. We have sent a letter of condolence to Her Majesty The Queen and the rest of the Royal family at this sad time, on behalf of the Parish Council and our residents. Read the letter.

We recognise with gratitude the devotion of his life to public service, and his continual and lifelong support to Her Majesty The Queen.
