Books of condolence are now available in both Hayle Community Centre on Queensway and in Hayle Library for members of the public to pay their respects. Everyone is welcome to sign them and leave their own message of condolence if they wish to do so. Hayle Community Centre is open Monday to Friday from 9.30am until 5pm and Hayle Library is open Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 9.30am until 5pm and Saturday from 9.30am until 12.30pm.
The books of condolence will be there until the day after the funeral.
The books will be a record of the sentiments expressed by local people on the death of the Queen. As such they will form part of the Council’s archive, so that future generations are able to access them and find out the way in which this significant national event was marked in Hayle.
A letter of condolence from the Mayor of the Town Council will be sent to the Private Secretary at Buckingham Palace, making reference to the Books of Condolence and their existence in the local archives. The letter will then be stored in the Royal Archives.
