We are very sorry to hear the sad news of the passing away of Prince Philip. He was a known for his forward thinking and the introduction of the Duke of Edinburgh Award which is a big legacy for youngsters to take advantage of. Our thoughts and sympathy is with the Queen and all her family at this very difficult time.
