Marking a Silence – 8:00pm, Sunday 18th September 2022



We have received notification that the County Council is not leading on any other events during the period of mourning. A minute’s silence is to be held at 8:00pm on Sunday 18 September 2022. You may wish to mark this at home or in local places of worship, however, the Chairman of Southwater Parish Council will be recording a message which will be publicised in advance of the minute’s silence at 7:45pm which you will be able to view via the Southwater Parish Council Facebook Page prior to paying your respects with the national silence.


The County Council is encouraging people to watch the funeral from home at 11:00am on Monday 19 September 2022 and Southwater Parish Council mirrors their recommendation.


On behalf of the people of Southwater, the Chairman of the Parish Council will be sending a letter of heartfelt condolence to His Majesty King Charles III and the Royal Family on the death of Her Majesty, the Late Queen Elizabeth II.
