We've launched a survey asking for your thoughts on how to commemorate those who lost their lives to COVID-19 and remember the wider impact of the pandemic in Royal Greenwich. 

While the pandemic is not over yet, and the impact of the last year will be felt for a long time to come, we are starting to plan what kind of memorial the borough should have and want your views and input.  The survey will be open until 23 April 2021. 

Cllr Danny Thorpe, Leader of the Council, said: “It has been an extremely difficult year for so many of us and many lives have been changed due to the impact of the virus and the pandemic. We want to provide a space in the borough for residents to reflect and remember loved ones who have died as a result of COVID-19 and to act as a beacon of hope for the future.” 

We have suggested some ideas in the COVID-19 memorial survey including a fountain of remembrance and a garden of peace but we're also open to new ideas from residents.
