In the interests of safety please come and place your tribute during the day.
Stewards may be on hand to supervise the tribute and provide assistance to members of the public.
We would like to also pay our own tribute to The Queen.
We were both very lucky to see the Queen during our nursing / farming careers .
A small, gracious lady, whose smile and radiance knew no bounds.
