Service to be held in Hull to mark World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims - 15/11/17
On Sunday 19 November Hull City Council will hold its 16th annual service to remember people who have lost their lives or been injured on Hull’s roads.

To mark this day of remembrance, a trail of temporary butterflies are being painted onto the pavements from St Mary’s Church to the permanent memorial which is housed at the Streetlife Museum.

World Day of Remembrance for Road Traffic Victims takes place every year on the third Sunday in November to pay tribute to those who have lost their lives or been injured on roads around the world, including those in Hull.

Lord Mayor of Kingston upon Hull and Admiral of the Humber, Councillor John Hewitt, said:

“We hope that families and friends of loved ones who were killed or injured on our city’s roads will find this special service a fitting occasion to pay their respects.

“With more names added to the Book of Remembrance year-on-year it is clear that there are still too many casualties on our city's roads. We hope that this service sends a respectful yet powerful reminder to all road users to take care.”

The service will take place at St. Mary’s Church, Lowgate, at 2.30pm.
