A MEMORIAL service commemorating local residents who died during the Covid pandemic will be held in Drumchapel this weekend.
The service, organized by the Drumchapel Community Council (DCC), will begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday, September 4 at Drumchapel Park.
It is hoped that the event will give people the opportunity to grieve and remember their loved ones, friends and neighbours.
With funding from Glasgow City Council’s Local Partnership, CDC was able to purchase a memorial bench, stone and tree which are all located in the park.
Andy Lynch, president of DCC, told the Job: “This is to commemorate the people of the Drumchapel, Blairdardie, High Knightswood areas who have died during the Covid pandemic.
“We got money from the local partnership to buy a memorial bench. We had to put this up in Perth and put some artwork on it including a rainbow, love hearts and clouds which represent the NHS.
“We also have a creaking tree and a memorial stone with text inscribed on it that commemorates the people of the area.
“We hope the council will be able to provide a small fence to surround it.
“We’ve done some tarring, and there’s wheelchair access for anyone who wants to visit and take a moment to remember their loved ones, whether it’s for birthdays, anniversaries, or just whenever they want .
“We care about everyone in our local community.”
The service is open to anyone who wants to get started.
