A book of condolence for the victims of the Tunisian tragedy has been set up at council reception for anyone wishing to pass on their condolences to those affected.

“ Following the news of the tragic event in Tunisia we have set up a book of condolence at the council offices, for anyone that wishes to express their sympathy to the families of those affected.

"The devastating news that one of the borough’s residents was a victim in this tragedy has certainly shocked the close knit community of Tadley and also meant that, as a borough, we feel strong local connection to what is being felt nationally.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of all the victims along with others affected by this tragedy.”

– The borough’s Mayor, Cllr Anne Court
