Providing a wide range of services and representing the town on all matters affecting Bridport and West Bay.

Announcement by the Mayor of Bridport, Cllr Ian Bark:

HRH Prince PhilipIt is with great sadness that I announce that His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh passed away peacefully earlier today, Friday 9 April 2021, at Windsor Castle, aged 99. The Duke was married to Queen Elizabeth II for more than 70 years and was the longest-serving consort in British history.

On behalf of the town of Bridport I offer our sincerest condolences to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family at this difficult time, and I offer our thanks for the Duke’s lifelong service to the nation.

Union Flags at the Town Hall and Mountfield are being flown at half-mast, and a Book of Condolence is available. With regret, given the current circumstances this will be an online facility in the main. For those who do not have internet access and would like to express written condolences, these should be sent to the Town Clerk, Bridport Town Council, Mountfield, Rax Lane, Bridport DT6 3JP for inclusion in the Book of Condolence. I very much hope people will understand the need for this cautious approach to minimise the risks associated with Covid-19.

You can sign the official Book of Condolence at  A selection of these messages will be passed to the Royal Family.

For those wishing to lay flowers in remembrance of Prince Philip, please place the flowers on the lawn at our Mountfield offices in Rax Lane.
