Reflections Day 23rd March 2021
The Town Council will mark the anniversary of the day that lockdown started by The Town Mayor, Cllr John Dabell, laying a wreath of daffodils and spring flowers at the Memorial Wall at Mount Noddy and just for the 23rd a bouquet will rest on the Covid remembrance bench by the McIndoe Statue.
Nationally Marie Curie are calling for a day of reflection back over the lost year of 2020, to take place on the anniversary of the Prime Minister placing the country in to lockdown on 23rd March. A time to collectively think back over all who have been lost or suffered at the hands of the pandemic.
The Daffodil is the emblem of the Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The Covid remembrance bench was unveiled on 24th February and has been a point for people to sit and reflect, on this reflection day the hand tied bouquet will sit on the bench to mark the anniversary while the Town Mayor will then lay a wreath at the cemetery’s memorial wall.
The Wall at Mount Noddy is the focal point for any town wide or national grieving, and anyone is welcome to place flowers in remembrance there at any time.
