UK national day of reflection

A one minute silence and a national doorstep vigil will form part of a day of reflection to mark the anniversary of the UK's first Covid lockdown.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is backing charity Marie Curie's plan for Tuesday 23 March, when those who have died in the pandemic will be remembered. 

There will be a one minute silence at 12noon with people encouraged to light up their doorsteps that night. Prominent buildings and landmarks will also be illuminated across the UK. 

The Elmbridge Civic Centre flag will be flown at half mast on 23 March and employees encouraged to observe the one minute silence at 12noon.
