As a Federation, we are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Her Majesty The Queen on 8th September 2022, at the age of 96. Our thoughts are with her family at this difficult time.
We join people around the country, and across the Commonwealth in remembering her life and mourning her passing after an unprecedented 70 year reign.
Our CEO, Paul Smith, said: “In this moment of solemn reflection, we mourn the passing of Her Majesty, a leader who has demonstrated incredible stoicism, integrity, and service to her country.”
“We at the White Horse Federation pass on our deepest sympathy to the Royal Family. Our thoughts are with them. In the coming days, we will hold assemblies and events to celebrate her historic reign and mark her passing.”
Chair of Trustees, Ninna Gibson said: “The White Horse Federation is grateful to Her Majesty for her service. The longest-serving monarch in British history and a remarkable woman. We stand together with people worldwide in paying our respects and passing on our deepest sympathy.”
Preparations have been made by the relevant organisations for a period of mourning, and we will be following the correct procedures accordingly. We are sure that every member of our Trust community will observe this period respectfully.
