Following the terror attacks at London Bridge and Borough
Market, Southwark Council have all been moved by the floral and individual tributes left for
Southwark have been continually maintaining the tributes, but many
of the flowers are now past their best, and they will be removing them on Monday
26 June, following a blessing from the Dean of Southwark Cathedral. All
memorabilia, cards and individual messages will be passed to the victims’
families or kept safely, and the flowers will be turned into compost to be used
at a dedicated site nearby.
Southwark Council will be developing plans for a permanent memorial and
will consult fully with those directly affected by the attacks and the wider
Books of condolence remain open in Southwark Cathedral and
the council’s offices at 160 Tooley Street.
