We will always be grateful for Her Majesty’s seven decades of dedicated service to our country, both in peacetime and war. Her strength and unswerving sense of duty has been a true inspiration, even in the toughest of times.
The Queen has been a constant throughout my life and whilst politicians come and go, world events pass and fashions ebb and flow, the Queen has served our nation with unparalleled devotion, dedication, and service.
She has been much-respected and much-loved as a head of state throughout the world, including here in Croydon. Earlier this year communities across our borough united to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee, and the celebrations were testament to the sense of pride and togetherness she has inspired. I know we will all be reflecting on special memories of Her Majesty today.
- Jason Perry, Executive Mayor of Croydon
