Respects have been paid in Grantham to those killed in yesterday’s Manchester bomb attack.
As a mark of respect a minute’s silence was held in the Mayor’s Parlour at a meeting of the Grantham Civic Society today.
Mayor of Grantham Coun Linda Wootten, who attended the meeting, said: “On behalf of the town of Grantham our heartfelt sympathies go out to the families, friends and loved ones of all those who perished in the tragic arena attack in Manchester. We grieve with them.”
The council flag and the Union Jack are flying at half mast outside the offices of South Kesteven District Council in Grantham.
A post on the Facebook page of St Wulfram’s Church says: “Prayers, love, deepest sympathy and strong solidarity with the people of Manchester today. May God’s peace & strength surround you.”
Twenty two people were killed and 59 injured in the attack at the Manchester Arena last night following a concert by Ariana Grande.
