The Green Party expresses sincere condolences to the Queen and the rest of the Royal Family following the sad news of the Duke of Edinburgh's death at the age of 99.

10 April 2021

The Queen and Prince Philip were married for more than 70 years and this is a time of great sadness.
Prince Philip made a notable contribution to connecting young people with nature and the outdoors through the founding of the DofE award scheme. He was also a no-nonsense character, with a belief in democracy and a concern for our environment.

Amber Valley Green Party is a grass-roots party with a local focus and we are proud of our street campaigning. Throughout the year we deliver literature to people’s doors which people find informative and interesting, and, COVID regulations permitting, we knock on people’s doors to talk with them. We feel that the Duke believed in democracy and would want this activity to continue.

However, as a mark of respect, we will pause our campaigning today, Saturday April 10th and on the day of the Duke’s funeral.

Like so many people across the country, our thoughts are with the Queen and her family.
