Wandsworth will mark Grenfell anniversary

Published: Wednesday 13th June 18

The council will join the London-wide commemoration in the early hours of tomorrow morning (Thursday) marking the first anniversary of the Grenfell tragedy.

Wandsworth town hall will join other landmark buildings across the capital to be illuminated in green just before 1am to mark the moment 12 months ago that the fire began. 

Battersea Power Station will also take part in the commemoration, while across the capital, the Houses of Parliament, Trafalgar Square, Tower Bridge, City Hall, The London Eye and BT Tower are among a host of others that will also turn green – the colour chosen by survivors’ support group Grenfell United, which came up with the idea.

All these buildings will be bathed in green light from 1am until sunrise tomorrow morning and then again later in the day between dusk and midnight.

Wandsworth Council leader Ravi Govindia said: "The tragic loss of life at Grenfell unfolded a year ago but the memories of that awful night are still fresh in the minds of all Londoners. As a council we want to show our support for the Grenfell community and all those affected by that terrible and unprecedented event.”
