Book of Condolence Opens Tomorrow for Victims of London Attack

READING will tomorrow (June 6) open its own Book of Condolence for the victims of Saturday night’s attack in London.

A one minute’s silence will be led by Reading Mayor Rose Williams outside the Civic Offices in Bridge Street from 11 am tomorrow, where the flag outside the building is flying at half-mast. Members of the public are invited to join Council staff in remembering those killed or injured.

Cllr Williams will be the first to sign the Book of Condolence, before it is then opened up for Reading residents to add their thoughts. The book will be positioned in the reception area of the Civic Offices.

Reading Mayor Rose Williams said:

“Following on from Manchester, it is heart breaking to now have to mourn the victims of another horrific attack, this time in London. Once more, the thoughts of everyone in Reading are with the families and friends of people who have lost their lives, or who have been injured.

“I would point Reading residents to the Book of Condolence which will open tomorrow at the Civic Offices and where they can add their own thoughts over the coming days. Residents can also join me for a moment of reflection at 11am outside the Civic Offices on Tuesday morning.”
