The families of Alison Howe and Lisa Lees are inviting the people of Royton to join them for a Picnic in the Park to pay tribute to their loved ones.
This event will be taking place at Tandle Hill Country Park from 5pm onwards on Friday, June 23 following funerals earlier that day at St Anne’s Church.
Alison and Lisa were taken from us in the Manchester Arena attack and we have since been overwhelmed by offers of support and condolences from across the community.
We are inviting local people to bring picnics to Tandle Hill to join an event to honour and celebrate the lives of two angels who represented “the best of all of us”.
Entertainment will be provided by local musicians on a stage from around 6pm onwards until 10.30pm.
Our families hope that many others will join us to show that – while our hearts are broken – the community stands together.
Please note that we politely ask people to arrive on foot to minimise disruption/ parking issues in the neighbourhood.
People can bring their own food and drinks but barbecues, Chinese lanterns, tea lights or other flammable objects will not be permitted in the interests of public safety.
This event is supported by Oldham Council, Greater Manchester Police and a range of partners in the area.
