A Message from the Mayor of Hawkesbury, Councillor Sarah McMahon

“Through her grace and wisdom as a steadfast leader, Her Majesty brought so much strength to her Family, our nation and to all realms of the Commonwealth.

“Over the 70 years of her reign, The Queen personified a life of duty and dedication; resilience in the hard times and joy in the good times,” Mayor McMahon said.

“The Hawkesbury has cherished memories of the Royal visits to our community in years gone by and we feel united by the memories we share.

“In accordance with Government protocol and respect, the flags outside Hawkesbury City Council are being flown at half mast and condolence pages are available so we can all can convey our personal messages to the Royal Family.”

The Royal Family has asked members of the public to make donations to charities rather than floral tributes in memory of The Queen. Many causes were close to the Queen’s heart with Queen Elizabeth II being associated with more than 600 charities during her reign.
