THE 28th anniversary of the IRA bomb attack on Warrington which claimed the lives of Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball will be commemorated with an online event this year due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation, set up in memory of the two boys killed in the 1993 Warrington bomb attack, has announced that the commemoration of the 28th anniversary of the attack will not take place on Saturday
20th March. Instead there will be an online event over Zoom on Friday 19th March 2021 (the day prior to the anniversary) between 12:00 and 12:45.
Last year’s commemoration was cancelled as a result of the first lockdown and, sadly, this year’s anniversary has also been impacted by Covid-19 restrictions.
The Peace Foundation adheres to all legislation and guidance governing work, public gatherings and events and therefore, it has been decided that no organised public event will take place at this year, either at Bridge Street or at the
People wishing to pay their respects are asked to make private arrangements for reflection and observe social distancing and follow current regulations.
The Peace Foundation will mark the anniversary through an ‘online’ commemoration that will include words from Colin Parry, civic dignitaries from Warrington Borough Council, and a representative of Warrington faith communities.
Full details will be publicised through the Peace Foundation’s website and social media but if anyone would like to enquire about taking part they can email: email@example.com
