Nottingham Together

Last updated: 18/6/2023

The thoughts of everyone here at Rushcliffe Borough Council are with all those in the city who have been affected by Tuesday's tragic incidents. 

Speaking on the tragic events, Rushcliffe Borough Council’s Leader Cllr Neil Clarke said: “We were all devastated to hear the awful news of the events on Tuesday morning in the City.

"Rushcliffe is a close neighbour to the City and we offer condolences and support to the families, friends and everyone involved.

"To lose two young aspiring lives at the start of their adult journey and someone about to enjoy a well earned retirement after a career of helping young people is just heartbreaking.

"We join in offering support in utterly horrendous circumstances."

Following the heart-breaking news of the attacks, we have shown our support for the #NottinghamTogether campaign by lowering our flags to half mast at our Rushcliffe Arena base.

A book of condolence was also opened on Thursday evening as people were invited people to lay flowers on the steps of the Council House.

A candle lit vigil was also held in the Old Market Square Thursday evening, as thousands of people turned out to pay their respects and mourn those who lost their lives as the city continues to come together.
