Two books of condolence will be opened in Arnold for people in Gedling borough to leave their thoughts and messages for people affected by the recent terror attack in London.
People can leave messages in the books at Arnold Library and also Nottinghamshire County Council’s office on Sir John Robinson Way. The books will be open from 9am tomorrow (Tuesday 6).
The books will remain open until June 26. After this date, the sheets will be collated into one document and sent to the Mayor of London.
Councillor Kay Cutts, Leader of Nottinghamshire County Council has written to Sadiq Kahn, Mayor of London to express sympathy and reassurance that London is in our thoughts.
She said: “I am sure I speak for all the people of Nottinghamshire by expressing our deep condolences to the families and friends of the innocent people who lost their lives or were injured in the attack at London Bridge and Borough Market in London on Saturday. We stand together with all those affected.
“Just as at Westminster and Manchester recently, the bravery and professionalism of our emergency services was incredible. I would like to add our tributes for their swift and comprehensive response.
“These despicable, cowardly terrorists have attacked people out enjoying themselves in a blatant attempt to unnerve the public and disrupt the freedoms that are at the very core of British values. But we will not let them and the subsequent ‘business as usual’ response from all Londoners sends a clear message that terrorism will never succeed.”
Existing Books of Condolence for the Manchester terrorist attack will remain open until June 14.
