West Belfast Orange Hall on Shankill Road has been renamed West Belfast Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Orange Hall. EPS President, Rev William Malcolmson, has had a long association with the hall and is the Chairman of the Board of Trustees. Dr Malcolmson said, “Her Late Majesty’s memory is held in the highest regard by all associated with our Hall. As Trustees, this is the greatest tribute that we can pay in recognition of her exemplary life of service to our nation and the Commonwealth, to rename our hall in her honour. As Defender of the Faith, her Christian commitment was central to her life and was a guiding light in her challenging role. We give thanks to Almighty God for her wonderful example of life-long Christian devotion”.
