The event took place this morning when a total of five wreaths were laid by civic figures including:

  • James Saunders Watson Esq, Lord-Lieutenant of Northants
  • Dominic Hopkins DL, Under Sheriff of Northamptonshire
  • André Gonzalez De Savage, Chairman of West Northamptonshire Council
  • Cllr Larry Henson, Chairman of North Northamptonshire Council
  • Cllr Dennis Meredith, Mayor of Northampton

Members of the public have also been invited to lay their own wreaths and other floral tributes as Northamptonshire mourns the country’s loss.

For so many years Her Majesty laid wreaths in remembrance of those who fell in defence of our country, so it is fitting that we should remember her in this way too.

She was a magnificent example to us all and will be sorely missed, and I’m sure that many people will also wish to remember her in their own way.
James Saunders Watson, HM Lord-Lieutenant for Northamptonshire and the King’s representative in the county
