Following the sad passing or Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a short wreath-laying ceremony involving local organisations and dignitaries took place at 12 noon on Saturday 10 September at the Bandstand in Leigh Road Recreation Ground in Eastleigh town centre.
Deputy Lieutenant, Hugo Cubitt; The Mayor of Eastleigh, Councillor Adam Manning; and the Chief Executive of Eastleigh Borough Council, James Strachan along with other individuals and organisations placed wreaths on the bandstand before going to the Point to sign the book of condolence.
On Sunday 11 September, the local reading of proclamation of the new monarch by the Mayor of Eastleigh, Councillor Adam Manning, will take place at 2pm on the Bandstand in the Leigh Road Recreation Ground. This will be a very brief ceremony, but members of the public are welcome attend.
A book of condolence has been opened at The Point theatre in Eastleigh town centre and can be signed between 9am and 5pm each day. It will be closed on the day of the state funeral (Monday 19 September) but will re-open the following day. Books of condolence are also available at parish council offices around the Borough.
