At this time, he will read the Principal Proclamation.

Sunday 11 September

The Parish Church will hold a Sunday Service, starting at 10:30 a.m., as normal.

From 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., the Parish Church will host an open session for the signing of a condolences book and lighting of candles, in the memory of Queen Elizabeth II.

From 4 p.m., the Mayor of Coleshill, Cllr. Caroline Symonds will be present.  She will lead a group at the Platinum Jubilee bench on the Croft, where floral tributes can be left.  The group will include a small section of the Coleshill Town Band who will be playing God Save the King.  There will be a Coleshill adaptation of the King’s Proclamation, read by the Mayor.
