Dear Friends and Colleagues
On Friday evening, on the eve of the funeral of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, the County of Bedfordshire Service of Thanksgiving was held at St Paul’s Church, Bedford, with thirty people in attendance from all parts of our county and representing different faith groups. There were some issues with the live -streaming on Friday therefore we now present a fully edited version which will serve as an historic record of this important event and which I hope will make you feel that you have been part of the tribute.

My thanks to Phil Fothergill DL and his team and Robin Bartlett at St Paul’s Church who have worked so hard to bring this to you.
We continue to hold HM The Queen and the Royal Family in our prayers.
HM Lord-Lieutenant of Bedfordshire
