Duke of Edinburgh

It is with great sadness that we learned today of the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh.

On behalf of Ilfracombe Town Council and the people of Ilfracombe I would pass on our condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family.

Prince Phillip was an incredible role model for those of us who are engaged in public service.

May he R.I.P.

There is a book of Condolence placed in the Ilfracombe Centre and it will be available between 9am and 1 pm each Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

A National book of Condolence will be shortly available on www.royal.uk.

The Town Mayor is Chairman of the Council; she is also the Civic Head of Ifracombe, representing the Town at many civic and other functions.

The Full Town Council meets on the second Monday of each month, with the Staffing CommitteePlanning Committee and the Finance & General Purpose Committee meeting on the 1st, 3rd and 4th Monday of the month respectively.   Meetings are held in the Council Chamber, The Ilfracombe Centre, usually starting at 7pm.
