National Day of Reflection 23.3.21

Posted on March 15th, 2021

Portcullis Surgery will be observing a minute’s silence and joining in the national doorstep vigil that will form part of a day of reflection to mark the anniversary of the UK’s first Covid National Lockdown on Tuesday 23rd March.
This day of remembrance and reflection is being organised by Marie Curie charity in order to remember those who have died in the pandemic.
There will be a minute’s silence at 12:00 GMT with people encouraged to light up their doorsteps that night by beaming phones, candles and torches into the night sky at 20:00.
Prominent buildings and landmarks will also be illuminated across the UK
.
Alongside the minute’s silence and doorstep vigil, the day will also see community-led activities take place, such as virtual assemblies, choirs, services and yellow ribbons being wrapped around trees.
A series of free online talks organised by the Good Grief Festival will also take place, featuring experts, bereaved families and celebrities. Please follow the link for more information.
