Over the coming months the United Kingdom’s National Police Memorial in London will be at the centre of the major ceremonial and celebration events that are taking place to mark Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The Trust’s Chair, Mrs. Michael Winner said:
“The Queen opened the Memorial in 2005 with my late husband, Michael so it is fabulous to see it now at the heart of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations. Since it was opened it has undergone a fabulous makeover including the installation of a beautiful illumination system which will help light the night sky during the festivities.”
Working with their partners in the Metropolitan Police and the Royal Parks The Police Memorial Trust have taken special steps to ensure that families, loved ones and colleagues will still be able to visit and access the memorial.
Mrs Winner added:
“From time to time due to operational and security requirements there may be some slight access restrictions to the National Police Memorial but the Metropolitan Police and the people from the Royal Parks have been marvellous in helping us keep that to a minimum.”
Mrs. Winner went on to say:
“If you experience any difficulties visiting the Memorial please speak to one of the police officers on duty who will assist you.”
Note: If you are going to visit the Memorial during any of the planned events you should approach from the North side ie. Enter The Mall from Trafalgar Square.
