We have been deeply saddened by the news of the death of His Royal Highness, The Duke of Edinburgh.

He has served our country since 1952. His memory will live on through the achievements of those young people who undertake the Duke of Edinburgh Awards.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s time studying at the Britannia Royal Naval College in Dartmouth gives him special significance to the people of the Dartmouth area.

On behalf of the Dittisham Parish Council, our thoughts are with the royal family at this time.

John Tucker, Chair, Dittisham Parish Council
