Service to Remember lives lost and injured on Warwickshire’s roads
November 19 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pmFree
Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership is inviting the public of all faiths to a service to remember those whose lives have been lost or injured on Warwickshire’s roads. The service will take place at St Mary’s Church in Warwick at 3pm on Sunday 19 November – the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims #WDOR2023.
The one hour service is open to everyone, and is an opportunity to gather together to personally remember a loved one, friend or relative and to collectively show commitment and support for safer roads in Warwickshire. Civic leaders, representatives from the emergency services and key road safety partners have also been invited.
The service will start promptly at 3pm with Opening Remarks from Canon Peter Holliday with the lighting of a candle and welcome from Faith Leaders.
Meera Naran MBE, a high-profile independent road safety campaigner whose son Dev Naran, eight, was killed in May 2018 on the M6’s hard shoulder will share her thoughts about ‘The Voice of the Victim’.
Chair of Warwickshire Road Safety Partnership and Police and Crime Commissioner Philip Seccombe will also share his ‘Reflections on Loss’ and the far reaching and enduring consequences of a collision.
A reading by Canon Peter Holliday and an address by Warwickshire Police Chaplain Matthew Hopley, will be followed by a minute’s silence and the congregation will be welcomed to come up to a tree of remembrance to place a leaf to represent their loved one.
After closing remarks and blessing, The BIG Sing Choir will be performing as the service comes to a close.
