A special online remembrance service to remember all those from Warwickshire who have died in road traffic collisions.
The event, organised by Police and Crime Commissioner for Warwickshire Philip Seccombe, brings together the key partners involved in road safety in the county, along with those who have lost loved ones on Warwickshire’s roads.
It takes place on the World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims, which was started in the UK by the RoadPeace charity in 1993. It went onto become a global day of commemoration in 2005, when it was endorsed by the United Nations, making it a major advocacy day for road traffic injury prevention.
Originally due to be hosted as a physical event at St Mary’s Church in Warwick, the coronavirus pandemic and current lockdown has meant that the service has been pre-recorded but will be streamed to the public online.
