Welcome to the Website of Rayne Parish Council


Queen Elizabeth

1926 - 2022



As the dust settles on what has been a monumental ten days of our lives, I would just like to say a thank you to all that laid flowers and wrote messages in the Book of Condolence at All Saints Church. It was lovely to see new and familiar faces at the Church.

The Books of Condolence are now closed.


It was truly special that so many of the Rayne Community came out on Sunday evening to watch and take part in the Ceremony to mark the National Moment of Reflection and Rayne’s Proclamation to the Accession of King Charles III.

The video of the Proclamation can be watched Here

It has been a period in our lives that we will never forget and on behalf of the Parish Council, I would like to thank everyone at All Saints Church that helped to keep the Church open to allow the signing of Books of Condolence daily, also to the Commemoration Group that ensured the flag on the Village Green was flying correctly during Great Britain’s period of mourning and of course members of the Parish Council that supported me through this difficult and sad time.
