    David Chalmers, as Mayor of Northam, has made the following statement on the sad death of the Duke of Edinburgh, recalling his meeting with him in 2002:

    'On behalf of Northam Town Council and its Councillors I should like to convey our deep sadness at the announcement of the death of HRH Prince Philip the Duke of Edinburgh at the grand age of 99, just two months from his 100th Birthday. Prince Philip dedicated his life to our country and its people, and in our nation's history will be remembered for the steadfast support he has given to our Queen throughout their long marriage and the 69 years of her reign. He was a keen environmentalist and protector of the natural world long before we had ever heard reference to climate emergency. His Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme transformed lives and gave hope to thousands of young people.

    "His quiet and steadfast counsel and support of The Queen, is perhaps his greatest if unquantifiable contribution to our nation's history.

    "At this sad time for millions, we should never forget Prince Philip was a much-loved husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather. So our thoughts must be with the whole Royal Family, but in particular with The Queen at this difficult time."
