Details of anniversary arrangements of London Bridge and Borough Attacks
Plans to mark the anniversary of the London Bridge and Borough attacks on Sunday 3rd June

As we approach the anniversary of the terrible attacks at London Bridge and Borough last June, Southwark Council, and Southwark Cathedral, in partnership with local and national agencies, would like to share with you local arrangements planned to sensitively remember all those who were lost and harmed, including the local community.

The arrangements are as follows:

3pm – Service of Commemoration at Southwark Cathedral. This will be a private event, for bereaved families and victims, members of the local community, the emergency services, and all those who supported the emergency response and recovery during and following the attacks.

The ceremony will include the lighting of candles by family members for each of those who died and one for all who were harmed, and the planting of an olive tree in the Cathedral grounds. The ‘Tree of Healing’ will be planted using compost made from flowers left on London Bridge after the attack and will be a permanent memorial to all those affected.

4.10pm – A procession from the Cathedral to Southwark Needle monument at the corner of London Bridge and Tooley Street to join the public (media access provided on request).

4.30pm – A national minute’s silence and speeches, followed by the laying of flowers. 5pm – Close. We would like to extend an invitation to you as local businesses and your staff to join for the minute’s silence and laying of flowers on London Bridge.

If you are unable to attend, the flowers laid at London Bridge will be left in situ for several days allowing local workers and passers by to also pay their respects in the days following the anniversary.

We understand that many businesses in the area around the Cathedral, Borough Market and London Bridge will be operating as normal on Sunday 3rd June. We respectfully ask that businesses are mindful of the events taking place and trade respectfully, keeping business impact and noise to a minimum, particularly during the Cathedral service and the minute’s silence and flower laying on London Bridge, in acknowledgement of what will be a very difficult time for those affected by the attacks and their families.

Letter from Southwark Council 29 May 2018.
