Book of Remembrance

Following the tragic events in Manchester on Monday (May 22), books of remembrance are available for people to sign at both Bootle and Southport town halls. 

The books will be available from noon today (Wednesday, May 24) and anyone can share their thoughts at either town hall. 

Both town halls will be open from 8.30am-6pm on normal working days for anyone to sign the books. 

Flags are also flying at half-mast at both Bootle and Southport town halls as a mark of respect. 

Cllr Ian Maher, leader of Sefton Council, said: “People across the borough have been truly shocked and saddened by the terrible events in Manchester. 

“Many people from Sefton attended the concert on what should have been a joyous night but it turned into an awful nightmare. 

“Books of remembrance at both Southport and Bootle town halls will give people the opportunity to reflect and share their thoughts on this atrocity. 

“At this time we want to reiterate Merseyside Police’s message of reassuring our communities and ask everyone to be as vigilant as possible.”
