Those left in shock and grief after the horrendous attack on holiday-makers in Tunisia are invited to a Clitheroe church to observe a minute’s silence.

Clitheroe Parish Church will be opening its doors on Friday for the National Minute’s Silence announced by the Prime Minister earlier in the week.

The church will provide an opportunity for quiet reflection, starting at 11-45 am with quiet music. The minute’s silence at 12 noon will be followed by a short time of prayer and the opportunity to light a candle. All are welcome to attend.

The Rev. Andrew Whitehead said: “At times like these we naturally feel quite helpless and unsure of how we should respond.

“The minute’s silence on Friday is an opportunity to come together, to share our feelings of sorrow and grief, and to offer prayers for all those who have been directly touched by this tragedy.”
