Queen Elizabeth II


We are saddened by the death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and join the millions of people around the world in mourning her loss. Our thoughts are with The Royal Family at this time.
In Queen Elizabeth II we saw the consummate leader who offered stability and certainty to our nation and the Commonwealth and we have been moved by the tributes being shared by the many global leaders, charities and ordinary people whose lives she touched throughout her 70 year reign.
We remember with fondness the times Her Majesty visited our projects, usually to mark an official opening. Her warmth and ability to put people at ease would soon melt the nerves of the assembled line up of those of us who had been picked out to greet her. Her smile would light up the room and those fortunate enough to meet Queen Elizabeth will always remember their time with her.
We thank Queen Elizabeth for her sense of duty and her caring commitment to our nation.
