Harwich Society’s COVID-19 memorial to be officially unveiled

This Sunday (1st August) is the ‘Bobbit’s Stroll’ open day at the Harwich Society’s Bobbit’s Hole nature reserve and the occasion has been chosen for the official unveiling of the Society’s COVID-19 memorial.

The memorial is a sundial located within the nature reserve and is intended to act as a point of focus for everyone who has lost someone during the pandemic and, as a result of the restrictions, has not been able to mark their passing in the manner that they would have chosen.

On Sunday 1st August the memorial will be officially unveiled by Liana Bridges, the presenter of BBC Essex’s Sunday Quest.

Harwich Society chairman, Colin Farnell, says, “We have been very grateful for the positive reaction to the installation of our COVID-19 memorial, and it is already fulfilling its intended role by offering a little comfort to those who have suffered great loss. We are very grateful to Liana Bridges for agreeing to officially unveil it during this Sunday’s Bobbit’s Stroll’.

This year’s Bobbit’s Stroll will raise funds for Hedgehog Haven Essex and will take place from 10AM – 3PM.
