Council Update On The 7th Anniversary Of The Grenfell Tower Tragedy

The council has announced an update on the seventh anniversary of the Grenfell Tower tragedy. As with previous years, commemorations for the anniversary will be community-led and the council are keen to support where they can.

They anticipate that Grenfell Tower will be illuminated in green from 8pm on Thursday 13 June, to 6am on Friday 14 June and again from 8pm to around midnight on Friday 14 June. The site will be available for the bereaved, survivors and the local community on Thursday 13 June and Friday 14 June. The council will support those in the community who would like to visit the Grenfell Tower site to pay their respects on Thursday 13 June.

To remain effective, the council advises that the wrapping on the Grenfell Tower needs to be replaced each year. This year, they are also replacing the banners at the top of the tower due to wear and tear. You can find more information here.

Due to recent high winds, work on the annual rewrapping has occasionally had to stop but the council recognises the importance of completing the tower rewrapping before the anniversary of the Grenfell Tower tragedy. This means that some of the work will take place on Saturday mornings, 8am to 1pm, from 13 April, until the rewrapping is complete. The work will be carried out as sensitively and considerately as possible.

The replacement of the banners is due to start in early May and is expected to take a week, depending on the weather. This may involve work taking place over the bank holiday weekend. The banners will be removed and replaced one by one. The white wrapping behind each one will then be replaced, and a new banner put up. There may be times when you will not be able to see the banners, as the old ones are removed and replaced. Instead, only the white wrapping may be visible. The council advises that they will complete the banner replacement as quickly as possible

You can find all updates related to the Grenfell Tower site on the official government website here.
