The Peace Foundation has announced that the commemoration of the 27th anniversary of the Warrington bombing will not take place on Friday 20th March. 

The event at Bridge Street and the Peace Centre is cancelled in accordance with Government public health guidelines. 

People wishing to pay their respects are asked to make private arrangements for reflection and observe social distancing and self-isolation advice.  Whilst it is traditional to visit the memorial, this could be carried out at a later date. 

Nick Taylor. The Chief Executive of the Peace Foundation, the charity set up in memory of the two boys killed in the attack said: “These are extraordinary times. The decision to cancel the event is not taken lightly and in no way diminishes the significance of this date and I hope you share with us in thinking of Colin, Wendy and the Parry family, Johnathan’s family, Browen’s family and all others affected by this and other acts of terrorism.” 

If you, or someone you know, have been affected by the Warrington attack, the Peace Foundation’s team is available to offer practical and emotional support.
