The next ceremony of remembrance will take place on Saturday 9 August 2014
Every year, on the second Saturday in August
, a ceremony of remembrance is held at the RoadPeace Wood as part of August, National Road Victim month.
All are invited to attend this annual ceremony where we gather to remember together those who have lost their lives on our roads.
The ceremony offers an opportunity to reflect quietly in the peaceful and tranquil setting of the arboretum, as well as the chance to meet others who have come to remember loved ones.
During a short service in the Chapel, names of those being remembered are read out from oak leaves. This is followed by a short walk down to the RoadPeace Wood where the oakleaves are buried amongst the trees. Refreshments are served afterwards until the National Arboretum closes at 5pm.
For further information please contact the RoadPeace office on 020 7733 1603 or firstname.lastname@example.org
