Last Modified September 16, 2022

The book of condolence at our Civic Offices remains available for visitors to sign during council operating hours until 5.15pm on Tuesday, 20 September.   

There is also an online book of condolence on the Royal Family's website and a book of remembrance on the Hertfordshire Lord-Lieutenant's website

The Mayor of Hertsmere, Cllr John Graham, joined by the Mayoress, Mrs Barbara Graham has been representing the borough at services over the past week to commemorate the life and service of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and will continue to do so over this coming weekend:   

On Saturday (17 September) at 10.30am the Mayor and Mayoress will attend the Shabbat Service at Radlett Reform Synagogue and at 3pm a commemoration service at All Saint’s Church, Borehamwood. 

On Sunday (18 September), they will attend a Requiem Service at St Peter’s Church, Bushey Heath at 9.30am and at 6pm join a service of commemoration and thanksgiving at St Albans Cathedral, along with mayors and dignitaries from across Hertfordshire and other worshippers. 

Joined by the Deputy Mayor, Cllr Victor Eni and the Deputy Mayoress, Mrs Martine Eni, they will then attend a memorial evening at St Peter’s Church Hall in Bushey Heath from 8pm. 

A reminder that a minute’s silence will be held across the UK at 8pm on Sunday to mourn the Queen’s death and reflect on her life and legacy.   

Our Civic Offices will be closed on Monday 19 September to observe the national bank holiday in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s state funeral. 

Our waste services will accordingly slip by one day meaning black bin collections will take place a day later next week.
