A letter from the King...

Published: 08 November 2022

Shortly after the death of Her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Mayor, Cllr Jill Farrow, wrote to His Majesty King Charles III on behalf of the residents of Axminster to express our deepest condolences for the loss of his mother and our monarch.

His Majesty King Charles has responded with a card addressed to the people of Axminster which you can see below.

The message reads:

'It was so very kind of you to send me such a wonderfully generous message following the death of my beloved mother. Your most thoughtful words are enormously comforting, and I cannot tell you how deeply they are appreciated at this time of immense sorrow' 


Should you wish to read the card in person, feel free to visit the Town Council offices at the Axminster Guildhall.
