National Mourning Guidance

9 Sep, 2022

The government has just released National Mourning Guidance, which we wanted to draw to your attention.

The guidance sets out information on aspects of the National Mourning period such as floral tributes and social media advice. It outlines that it is at the discretion of businesses whether to consider closing or postponing events – especially on the day of the State Funeral – depending on their nature and tone.

In keeping with this, government business and the delivery of public services will continue, albeit without public announcements, visits, speaking engagements or media appearances at this time.

Your Local Authority will also be updating their own websites on any local arrangements, including books of condolences and any events they may organise which might impact on the locality of your business or local travel.
