Statement from Mayor Robert Bria and Elected Members


On behalf of the citizens of the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters, we are deeply saddened that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II has passed away, and we extend our sincere condolences to the Royal Family.

Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II served South Australia dutifully – with grace, intelligence and unwavering commitment.

Her Majesty has been a reassuring constant throughout our lives, ascending to the throne on 6 February 1952, making her the longest-reigning monarch in British history.

Over the past 70 years, Her Majesty has been dedicated to the service of our country and the Commonwealth, demonstrating an enormous sense of duty and commitment.

As we join the nation in mourning, the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters pays tribute to the contribution Her Majesty the Queen has made around the world through decades of public service.
