A message from Mr Ffinlo Williams Chairman of Ramsey Town Commissioners:
“It was with great sadness I learnt of the passing of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, Lord of Mann. I knew this day would come, but none the less it has come as a shock. Queen Elizabeth has served her country unfailingly for 70 years, as a young Chairman, only 4 months into my 1 year in the role, that amount of time and dedication is unfathomable.
As with any public figure there has been scrutiny over those 70 years, but she did not shy from her duty.
She has been a constant throughout my life and many others, and that unwavering devotion to her country and people - including us as Lord of Mann is inspiration in itself and something I feel commands the utmost of respect.
On behalf of members of Ramsey Town Commissioners, I extend my condolences to the Royal Family at this sad time."
