Guildford remembers Manchester victims in town centre vigil

Published at 3:43pm 26th May 2017.

Guildford has once again remembered the victims of the Manchester terror attack.

Yesterday there was a minutes silence on the high street at 11 o'clock, observed by the town's mayor, Councillor Nigel manning.

Today a vigil was held outside The Electric Theatre, organised by ACM student Harry Garbutt who is originally from Leeds.

Now living in the south, Harry felt it was important for people in the area to have a chance to remember those who lost their lives.

"It's been difficult for people in the south to get up to Manchester to show their solidarity, so I thought it would be best to arrange something down here for people to attend." Harry told Eagle.

"It's been quite a positive reaction, people seem to be unified together which is one of the positives things to come out of this sort of thing.

"Specifically with me and the ACM, obviously it's a music college and this was a direct attack on people who loved music, so I felt like I had to say something for people to get together and unify."
