light and hope


A message from the Mayor of Camden, Councillor Maryam Eslamdoust

Mayor of Camden


This has been an extremely difficult year for many in Camden. Our communities have experienced loss, grief and uncertainty as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. The restrictions on gatherings, worship and funerals have caused further distress. But through this time, there have been incredible stories of strength and kindness in our communities.

To reflect and commemorate the loved ones we have lost during this time, Camden is launching the Light and Hope website, which gives us the opportunity f to come together to remember and honour those who have lost their lives to coronavirus. .

Our virtual memory book will welcome contributions from all faiths and none, to remember and share precious memories of those we have lost, but also celebrate and give thanks for all they achieved in life. and mark our individual and collective loss.

I hope that by sharing our stories, tributes and traditions we can all gain some comfort and support together.  The memorial book will remain open into the New Year and for as long as required, and we are also planning an outdoor event to be held in 2021 once social distancing restrictions are eased.
