Residents and staff at RMBI Care Co. Home Cadogan Court, in Exeter, have recently welcomed the city’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Yolonda Henson. Accompanied by John Davies, Exeter’s Senior Mace Sergeant, the Mayor brought a book of condolences for everyone to sign and remember the late Queen Elizabeth II.
During her visit, the Mayor stated: “It is a privilege to visit Cadogan Court and other Homes in Exeter. It’s so important for everyone in our communities to have the opportunity to come together at this historic time of great national sadness.”
Residents and staff wrote messages to thank Her Majesty the Queen for her service throughout her 70-year reign. Words such as ‘dedication’ and ‘inspiration’ filled the pages of the book. Clare Walker, Home Manager at Cadogan Court, said: “Residents greatly appreciated the chance to write in the book of condolences here, in their own Home, especially those who are not able to visit the city regularly. So many of them have followed the Queen and her family throughout her life and reign, and some have even served in the British Armed Forces!”
