Join the 2 minute silence on Friday

March 21, 2019 7:18 AM

Chesterfield residents are invited to join a two minute silence in memory of those who lost their life in last week's terrorist attack in New Zealand.

People are invited to take part in a two minute silence on the steps of the Town Hall, Rose Hill at 2pm on Friday 22 March.

Councillor Tricia Gilby, Chesterfield Borough Council's leader, said: "It is important that we stand in support of our Commonwealth neighbours who have lost loved ones in last Friday's shooting.

"Everyone is welcome to join the commemoration on the steps of the Town Hall in their memory."

The silence is held at the same time as a two minute silence in New Zealand one week on from the attack on Friday 15 March.

Fifty people were killed in the shootings at a mosque in Christchurch with dozens more injured.
