Barrow Town Hall Clock to be bathed in purple light to honour George Floyd


The iconic Clock Tower at Barrow Town Hall is to turn purple tonight (Friday, June 5)  in memory of George Floyd and in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement and anti-racism protests around the world.

It will keep its purple light throughout the weekend along with other public buildings across the UK.

Councillor Ann Thomson, Barrow Borough Council leader, said:

“We have been shocked at the tragic recent events in the United States and send our condolences, as a community, to the family and friends of George Floyd.

“Racism, in any form, is completely unacceptable. It is a scourge upon society and the very opposite of all we stand for here in Barrow.

“Our community is welcoming and celebrates diversity. There is no place here for anything other than respect, equality and kindness for all.”
