Churches and councils open books of condolence as flags fly at half-mast

Flags are flying at half mast and books of condolence have been opened for people wishing to pay their respects to Her Majesty The Queen.

There are books of condolence at venues including St John’s in Keynsham and Keynsham Civic Centre, and people can lay flowers in a roped-off area of Keynsham Park.

There is also a book of condolence at Saltford Hall. Meanwhile South Gloucestershire Council will open a book at Kingswood Civic Centre and at the offices at Badminton Road in Yate from 9am tomorrow  for people to pay their own personal tribute to Her Majesty. The books will remain open every day from 9am to 5pm until Tuesday 20th September.

In Hanham today black flags are flying outside shops in the High Street.
