Soho Remembers
17-24-30 30th April

15th Anniversary Act of Remembrance 2014

Dear friends,
 
I am writing to invite you to join the families, friends and survivors of the Soho Nail Bomb attack (30th April 1999) for their annual Act of Remembrance this Wednesday 30th April 2014.
 
Join us after 5pm at The Admiral Duncan, Old Compton St.

At approximately 6.10pm we will the walk round to St Anne’s Garden in Waldour Street for a short service in the gardens next to the Triangular Bench (which was commissioned after the attacks to represent the link between Westminster, Tower Hamlets and Lambeth) and the three cherry trees which were planted in memory of the Soho victims. Earlier this year one of the three cherry trees was replaced.
 
This is the 15th anniversary of the Soho bomb, so we have invited representatives from Westminster, Tower Hamlets and Lambeth to join us this year to reaffirm our cross borough commitment to tackling all forms of hate crime.
 
Honorary Alderman Miss Frances Blois will be representing the Lord Mayor of Westminster, joined by the Mayor of Tower Hamlets Lutfur Rahman and Cllr Christopher Wellbelove representing the late Mayor of Lambeth Cllr Mark Bennett.
 
The Diversity Choir will be joining us this year to perform a couple of songs after the three minute silence that will take place at 6.37pm (the time of the Soho bomb), a minute for each of the three bombs – Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho, and for each of the Soho victims John Light, Andrea Dykes and Nick Moore.
 
Members of the Moore family have confirmed that they will be attending this year, along with survivors from the Brixton and Soho nail bomb attacks.
 
I would be grateful if you have a twitter account that you could tweet your support for the Soho Remembers 17-24-30 Act of Remembrance 30th April 2014 organised and facilitated by 17-24-30 No to Hate Crime Campaign @HateCrimeVigil and myself @Lambethhcc #SohoRemembers172430
