We have all been saddened by the news of the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, at aged 96, on Thursday 8th September at Balmoral Castle.

The Queen came to the throne in 1952 and spent over 70 years as the monarch, whilst devoting her life to the service of our country.

We join the whole nation, the Commonwealth and the rest of the world in mourning the loss of such a dedicated monarch and sending our deepest condolences to the Royal Family in this difficult time.

The government has officially declared Monday 19th September a bank holiday for the Queen’s national mourning, therefore the JTM head office will be closed for the day and re-open on Tuesday 20th September.
