Proclamation read in Newbiggin by the Sea


Councillor Louise Spratt, Mayor of Newbiggin by the Sea, read the Proclamation of King Charles III at Memorial Park on Sunday 11th September at 2pm in front of a small gathering of the community.

She declared ‘We, the people of the Civil Parish of Newbiggin by the Sea are united together during this period of National Mourning following the passing of our late Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth II on 8th September 2022. Our sadness at this time is shared by people across the globe, as we remember with affection and gratitude, the lifetime of service given by our longest reigning Monarch.

In an age where modern methods of communication convey news around the globe in an instant, the proclamation is no longer the means by which people learn for the first time that they have a new Monarch.

This is one of the first occasions when communities have an opportunity to come together and reflect on this moment in our nation’s history, when the reign of our longest-serving Monarch came to an end and our new Sovereign succeeded. So in keeping with tradition I recite the Proclamation as read by the Garter King of Arms at St. James’s Palace, cascaded down from capital to county to town‘.
