National Day of Reflection 23rd March 2022

Marie Curie - National Day of Reflection 23rd March 2022

On 23 March, let’s take time to connect,  supporting the millions of people who are grieving, and remembering the family, friends, neighbours and colleagues we've lost during the pandemic.
While life is beginning to return to normal for some people, others are still living with the trauma of loss, and not being able to grieve properly. This includes many children as well as adults. We need to come together, in our streets, workplaces, schools and communities, as well as with the nation at large, to acknowledge and soothe this pain.
Let’s make the legacy of the pandemic years one of compassion, love and active support for those who grieve, both now, and in the years to come.

How you can get involved:

  • At 12 noon, wherever you are, take a minute's silence to reflect.
  • Wear a daffodil or display spring flowers in your window.
  • In the evening show a light in your window to show support.

The Community Council will be lighting the trees on the Village Green and the flower memorial will be displayed.
