Remembering the 96: Wirral plans Freedom of the Borough and Memorial Gardens
The 96 men, women and children who lost their lives at Hillsborough will be posthumously awarded the Freedom of Wirral in September.
The riverside gardens overlooking the Mersey at Wallasey Town Hall will also be dedicated by the Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Ann McLachlan, on behalf of the people of Wirral, as a permanent memorial to the 96.
As well as commemorating those who died, the gardens will also serve as a lasting tribute to the courage, dignity and tenacity of the families and their campaign for justice for their loved ones.
Created with the support of The Hillsborough Family Support Group, the gardens will be a place of remembrance and reflection.
