InvestSK Chairman’s message of condolence on the death of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh

“On behalf of InvestSK and South Kesteven District Council, I express our condolences to the Royal Family on the passing of His Royal Highness, Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

His Royal Highness epitomised a life of service and dedication, not only to our Sovereign, but to the armed forces, the voluntary sector, and Britain’s young people. The youth award scheme in his name goes from strength to strength and continues to provide opportunities for so many. This, coupled with his brave and selfless heroism in the Royal Navy during the war and his active support of many good causes, provides a model of a life well-lived. His Royal Highness has left a lasting legacy of hope and opportunity which will illuminate the lives of future generations to come.

We are very thankful for His Royal Highness’ service and legacy, and he will be long-remembered in the hearts of the people of South Kesteven.”
