The 40th anniversary of the Guildford Pub Bombings falls on Sunday 5th October 2014, Holy Trinity Church will conduct a short service of commemoration at 4pm on this day.
The service will be held outdoors in the garden known as Quaker’s Acre in North Street (next to the Library and opposite the building that was formerly the Horse and Groom Pub) where there is a memorial plaque to the five people killed that evening: Private Ann Ray Hamilton and Private Caroline Jean Slater of the Women’s Royal Army Corps, Private William Forsyth and Private John Hunter of the Scots Guards and Mr Paul Craig. The WRAC Association National Standard will be present at the service.
Please note that this is designed to be a low key event, Quaker’s Acre is a very small courtyard garden which can only accommodate a very limited number of people. In the event of bad weather the service will be held in Holy Trinity Church, High Street, Guildford, GU1 3HJ.
