Merton Mayor Pays Tribute

The Mayor of Merton, Councillor Stuart Pickover, has paid tribute to the Queen Mother following her death in her 102nd year on Saturday.

“Her spirit was an inspiration to many throughout many troubled times and her dedication to duty will ensure she is long remembered.”

Flags have flown at half mast in Merton since the Queen Mother passed away on Saturday afternoon and a Book of Condolence will be available at Merton Civic Centre until the funeral next Tuesday.
