A message of condolence

The Countesthorpe Gardens and Allotment Society Committee was deeply saddened to learn of the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

Reigning for over 70 years, the Queen ruled for longer than any other Monarch in British history, becoming a much loved and respected figure across the globe.

The committee sends their deepest condolences to the Royal family at this sad time. 

We would like to share a poem that was published on Surrey Gardeners forum as a gesture of remembrance of the Queens service.

“Phillip came to me today,
and said it was time to go.
I looked at him and smiled,
as I whispered that “I know”

I then turned and looked behind me,
and seen I was asleep.
All my Family were around me,
and I could hear them weep.

I gently touched each shoulder,
with Phillip by my side.
Then I turned away and walked,
with My Angel guide.

Phillip held my hand,
as he lead the way,
to a world where Kings and Queens,
are Monarch’s every day.

I was given a crown to wear
or a Halo known by some.
The difference is up here,
they are worn by everyone.

I felt a sense of peace,
my reign had seen its end.
70 years I had served my Country,
as the peoples friend.

Thank you for the years,
for all your time and love.
Now I am one of two again,
in our Palace up above.”
