Signing to say thanks...

A MUM who took her young daughter to sign a book of condolence in memory of the Queen said she had wanted to pay tribute to an “amazing” monarch.

Angela Wild and five-year-old daughter Kyla went to St Bartholomew’s Church in Maltby on Friday to add their names and messages.

“She has always been absolutely amazing,” said Angela.

“I’ve had a lot of respect for her for working for 70 years and asked Kyla if she would like to sign the book and she said: ‘Yes, of course’, so we went after school on Friday.

“Kyla was aware of the Queen and knew we were having a new king as we’ve had the news on.”

Angela said Kyla had written: “You have been a good Queen. Thank you.”

She herself put: “Thank you for serving your country for 70 years.”

Kyla and classmates at Maltby Lilly Hall Academy took part in an assembly about the Queen and her life and teachers also discussed Her Majesty in lessons.

The school also observed a minute’s silence.

Anyone wishing to sign a book of condolence in Maltby can now do so at the Edward Dunn Memorial Hall on Tickhill Road and from 10am to 2pm on weekdays at St Bartholomew’s Church.
