A special event to remember loved ones lost during the pandemic will be held at the Covid Memorial Garden in Telford Town Park.

Members of the public are invited to join and together as part of Marie Curie's Day of Reflection event. The ceremony, on Friday 1 March, begins at 10am, where words of reflection will be shared from members of the Interfaith Council, a covid memorial plaque will be unveiled and a one-minute silence will be held.

To bring the event to a close the invited families of those who lost loved ones during the pandemic, and who supported the development of the new covid sculpture, will place a daffodil in memory of their loved one at the base of the memorial. Members of the public are welcome to create a ‘petal’ from the Marie Curie resources online and bring along.

This is expected to be a very special and poignant time of reflection for families and an opportunity for people to come together. The Covid Memorial Garden brings a sense of calm and space and the daffodils planted here are a fabulous show right now.

The Interfaith Council will be sharing words of reflection at this event and encourage those looking for a shared time of reflection to come together. 

Telford & Wrekin Council will also be lighting the Southwater One building yellow on Sunday 3 March (Marie Curie’s dedicated Day of Reflection) and the Covid Memorial Garden is open all year round as a place for quiet reflection.
