Join Corinium Radio For A Special Anniversary

Corinium Radio is inviting the Cotswolds to join us in marking a special day on Tuesday 23rd March.

The date marks the 12-month anniversary of the country going into the first lockdown as a result of Coronavirus.

In addition to acknowledging the devastating losses some families have faced as a result of the pandemic, we also want to pay tribute to the way our own community here in the Cotswolds has bonded together to support friends, neighbours and family at this difficult time.

Our plans for the day include a minute’s reflective silence at 12 noon on Tuesday, the ending of which will be marked by the tolling of a bell from Cirencester Parish Church.

Don’t forget…YOU ARE INVITED!

You will also be able to listen to messages from key members of the community illustrating the great sense of community spirit which has emerged across the Cotswolds over the last year.

Messages come from: Sir Geoffrey Clifton Brown MP; Cirencester Mayor Patrick Coleman; Amanda Howard, Cotswold Friends; Mark Wilton, Cirencester Rotary; Katy Sorensen, Cirencester Theatre Company; and Canon Graham Morris.

They speak of having to adapt to new ways of working, changing their approach to services and an overriding reliance on technology.

These are, indeed, powerful messages of the community coming together…and that’s exactly what Corinium Radio is all about.

That’s why we want to show our support for the special people who form the Cotswold community we are so proud of at this difficult time.

So make a date and join us for Marking the Day at 12 noon on Tuesday 23rd March.

This special project takes the spirit of the National Day of Reflection being organised by the Marie Curie charity and builds on it in our very own Corinium Radio way.

Over at Marie Curie they’re organising a National Day of Reflection on the 23rd to remember those who have died during the pandemic and to show support for everyone who has been bereaved,

They have the backing of leading politicians and over 100 organisations.

The charity said, “Since the pandemic began, many have been unable to say goodbye or grieve properly.

“The day will allow us all to remember those who have died and bring people together to pause, reflect and support each other this month and in years to come.”

It is hoped that this will become an annual event. It includes a nationwide minute’s silence at 12 noon, followed by bells tolling and prominent buildings and iconic landmarks being lit up at 8pm across the UK.
