Cambourne Community Fete due to take place on Saturday 17th September has been cancelled. Following the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Council feels it is not appropriate to go ahead with a celebratory event in this period of mourning.
We are looking to hold the next event in June 2023, date to be confirmed.
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II
21 April 1926 – 8 September 2022
A message from the Chair of Cambourne Town Council
It is with the greatest sadness that this evening we have learnt of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Having served our Nation with the utmost loyalty and dedication for 70 years, I hope that we as a town can come together during this period of mourning to reflect and remember our Monarch for all that she did, her unrelenting service and inspirational devotion to duty.
On behalf of the people of Cambourne, I offer my sincere condolences to the Royal family and to every person grieving locally, nationally and beyond at the loss of, for many of us, the only British Monarch we have known in our lifetime.
May this time of sorrow around the world be an opportunity for us to demonstrate locally our great sense of community, to support each other as we mourn the loss of our Queen.
Please know that through your time of deep sorrow, I, along with our families, friends and neighbours share your grief and that together we will look ahead to brighter days, which is what Her Majesty would want us to do.
Councillor Joe O’Dwyer
The Chair of Cambourne Town Council.
Floral tributes can be placed at the green space on the junction of Jeavons Lane and Eastgate. This location has been chosen as it is close to the Church and easily accessible. Flowers must be unwrapped from cellophane. Flowers will be removed the day after the funeral and then disposed of appropriately. We will use the compost for a future tree planting event.
A book of condolence is located in the Town Council office.
Alternatively, please follow the link to online national book of condolence.
Council meetings & events
No meetings to be held or notice of meetings to be given until at least the day after funeral. All other Council organised events will be postponed to an appropriate date. Once Council meetings resume, the first meeting will open with a minute silence.
