Sunday 17th October, 6.00pm

We are asking people to bring stones with the names of individuals from the groups we are commemorating. These can be found on the following websites:

At the end of the vigil we will ask people to place the stones at Splash Point as a temporary memorial.  

During the speeches people may wish to light up their mobile phones in place of lighting candles. We will ask everyone to raise a light for a moment’s silence.  

At the end of the vigil we will distribute flowers to those who have not brought their own, which can be thrown into the sea in memory of the many refugees who have drowned while fleeing to safety.
