National Day of Reflection

23 Mar 2021

Royal Borough of Greenwich is asking all residents to join in the National Day of Reflection on Tuesday 23 March to mark one year on since the start of the first UK lockdown, and...

  • reflect on all that’s happened in the past year
  • remember the hundreds of thousands of people who have died in the UK from COVID-19, and
  • recognise the progress that has been made in the fight against this deadly virus.


At 12 noon, please join us in a one-minute silence to honour loved ones, friends and colleagues who have died and reflect on the challenges we have overcome.


At 8pm, please shine a torch or candle from your window or doorway to light up the sky as a beacon of remembrance and hope for a brighter future.


The council is also launching a survey to ask residents for their thoughts on how to commemorate those who lost their lives to COVID-19 and remember the wider impact of the pandemic on Royal Greenwich.  Find out more at
