A BOOK of Condolence has been opened at Wallasey Town Hall in memory of former South African president, Nelson Mandela.
The anti-apartheid campaigner, whose release from prison in 1990 is commemorated with a plaque in the foyer of the Town Hall, died yesterday aged 95.
Leader of Wirral Council, Cllr Phil Davies, pictured signing the Book of Condolence with Graham Burgess, Chief Executive, Wirral Council, said: "Nelson Mandela was a man of principles and peace, his message of reconciliation has a strong resonance today.
"I know many local people have been saddened by his death, and want to express their sympathies and their appreciation, in some way. We hope our Book of Condolence will enable them to do so."
The Book of Condolence will be open from 9am to 5pm weekdays, at Wallasey Town Hall, Brighton Street, Wallasey, CH44 2DL.
