‘I offer heartfelt condolences to the Royal Family on behalf of everyone at North Norfolk District Council and people across North Norfolk.

Today we are mourning the loss of our Queen, who has served us with huge dedication for decades. Her Majesty served her country for more than three quarters of a century – a magnificent achievement that may never be matched – and she remained a constant presence in public life throughout her reign. Her selfless work and public engagements brought joy to millions of people, and she continued to undertake this role until very recently.

Despite her constant presence in public life over the years, Her Majesty also embraced change. Society generally has changed hugely and is very different today compared with when she acceded to the throne. But that modernisation can also be seen in the Royal Family, which she helped to keep relevant to today’s world.

We shall miss her hugely, but she will be remembered for generations to come as one of the greatest monarchs this country has ever had.’

- Pauline Grove-Jones, Chairman, North Norfolk District Council
