Scottish Borders Council has arranged for its flags to fly at half-mast on all Council buildings as a mark of respect to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, following the announcement of his death.
Councillor David Parker, Scottish Borders Council Convener
“Prince Philip enjoyed many public and private engagements in the Scottish Borders during his time as the Duke of Edinburgh. He was particularly fond of Lauderdale, where he enjoyed the hospitality of the local community.
"The Council is very sad to hear this news, and offers Her Majesty the Queen and all her family our deepest sympathies and condolences at this time.”
An Online Book of Condolence is available for those who wish to send a personal message
