Ealing Council is launching a COVID-19 commemoration project to find a way, or ways, of marking the impact the pandemic had, and continues to have, on our borough.
The impact of the pandemic has been felt by everyone and, as we move forwards, the commemoration project is an opportunity to recognise this and start the process of coming to terms with the the past two years.
Council leader Peter Mason said: “To mark the enormity of all the last two years, we are launching a borough-wide conversation about how we should commemorate all that has happened.
“We want to remember those who have been lost during this time but also acknowledge the strength of Ealing’s community spirit. The extraordinary efforts individuals, organisations and groups went to ensure that the NHS kept standing and that support and friendship was there for those who needed it, even when we were kept apart.”
‘We want your input’
“The commemoration project will provide a space for us to reflect,” added Councillor Josh Blacker, cabinet member for healthy lives. “It’s also an opportunity for use to think about our future and what recovery in Ealing might look like.
“There are no firm views on what form, or forms, the final memorial will take. For such a significant initiative we want your input.”
You can share your ideas and views on how to mark the last two years. Visit the Do Something Good website to submit your ideas before 30 April 2022.
