Grenfell Tower fire: Brent remembers
11 June 2020
It is the third anniversary of the Grenfell Tower tragedy and Brent Civic Centre has been lit green as a mark of remembrance and solidarity with those whose lives, loved ones and homes were lost.
Commemorations will be virtual this year due to COVID-19 and in line with Government guidance. At 11am on Sunday 14 June, Relative Justice Humanity for Grenfell will lead an online church service featuring live footage along with pre-recorded music and video messages from community, faith and political leaders. The service will be live streamed via https://youtu.be/Qtocpl7Dc6I and https://www.facebook.com/HumanityForGrenfell
At 6pm, later that day, Grenfell United with Grenfell Silent Walk will be holding an online service of remembrance and reflection, in place of the normal evening vigil and silent walk that has occurred in previous years. It will include over 70 church bells across London ringing at 6pm in memory of 72 loved ones, a two-minute silence, remembrance as well as reflections on the journey to justice.

Mayor of Brent, Cllr Ernest Ezeajughi said:
"Brent remembers those who lost their lives in the Grenfell Tower tragedy, we have turned the Civic Centre Green for Grenfell in tribute and will join in the virtual commemorations organised by the community.
"We are a neighbouring borough to Kensington and Chelsea and will never forget the 72 people who tragically died, as well as many more whose homes were lost and lives drastically altered.
"My thoughts go out to all of those affected."
