Borough Market will hold a minute’s silence at the end of the trading day this Saturday to remember all those affected by last year’s terrorist attack.

When the market bells ring to mark the end of the day’s trading, traders, staff, shoppers, locals, and passers-by will gather together on the market’s Middle Road to quietly pay their respects to those affected by the attacks on June 3, 2017.

The following day on the first anniversary of the attack, Borough Market, which is closed on Sundays, will join with Southwark Cathedral, Southwark Council, the city of London, the Mayor of London, the NHS, the police and a whole host of residents, businesses and charities to remember the events of last year.

A spokesperson for Borough Market said: “For the families of those who were killed, and for everyone whose lives have been fundamentally altered, we continue to offer our help and solidarity wherever we can give it.

“This Sunday will be a day of sadness, remembrance and contemplation—but also a day that draws on the resolve and unity of our community, and of people from all over the world.”
