Rugby mayor Cllr Bill Lewis has laid a wreath in memory of HRH Prince Philip on behalf all residents in the borough.

Public figures across the county paid tribute to Prince Philip following his death this morning, April 9, at the age of 99.

And this afternoon Cllr Lewis laid a wreath at a specially designated spot inside the main gates of Caldecott Park.

The message on the wreath reads: "With deepest condolences, on behalf of the citizens of the borough of Rugby. Cllr William H Lewis, Mayor of Rugby."

Residents may add their own floral tributes if they wish.

Floral tributes may be laid or observed during normal opening hours at Caldecott Park.

Residents are asked to keep at least two metres apart from anyone they don’t live with and return another time if the area is busy.

The tribute area will be overseen by Rugby Borough Council’s community wardens.

A book of condolence has also been opened and residents are invited to add their own messages.

You can contribute to the book by visiting, or by posting their tribute to Book of Condolence, Rugby Borough Council, Town Hall, Rugby CV21 2RR.

Messages will be transcribed into a bound book to be gifted to the social history collection at the Rugby Art Gallery and Museum.
