National Day of Reflection

Today, 23 March 2021, is the 1st anniversary of the first UK lockdown. A National Day of Reflection is being held to reflect on our collective loss, support those who’ve been bereaved and hope for a brighter future.

There will be a national minute of silence at 12 noon. At 8 pm people are encouraged to shine a light in your window to remember someone who’s died and show your support to people going through a bereavement.
