Remembering at Rotherhithe

Hundreds of people come every year to the annual Albins service of Remembrance, held in their garden of remembrance on the edge of Southwark Park.

Local clergy, the Mayor, the Leader of the Council, Sir Simon Hughes and hundreds of families gathered for tonight's event that included poems, a reading from the Bible, prayers, Christmas carols, and the opportunity to remember departed loved ones through the stars that were attached to the giant Christmas tree that dominated the scene.

Jon and Simon compered the event, continuing the great tradition of their father, Barry, whose inspiration the service was.

Fireworks and festive refreshments rounded off the event that has a deep place in the hearts of the people of Bermonsdey and Rotherhithe. Once again, huge thanks are due to the whole Albins team, whose generosity and hard work, make this amazing event possible.
