Grenfell

North Kensington, London. Sat 17 Jun 2017


    
 All around the area are posters with photographs of those who are missing

 People stand around and look at the burnt out Grenfell tower
    
 
    
 

 

 

 

 Notting Hill Methodist Church is one of the main centres where people have gathered and victims have been supported

 Grenfell Tower from the church. Police barriers prevent a closer approach

 People havve brought flowers, candles, notes, paintings....

 and can talk with the Response Pastors here

 

 

 
    
 

 
    
 The volunteer relief centres have been overwhelmed by people bringing food, clothes, toys and other donations. Though the official response has

 been tardy and often niggardly, ordinary people have been generous and opened their hearts to the victims

 

 

 People are still bringing flowers and candles to light

 

 
    
 

 

 Churches and mosques were quick to give support. The local council was seen to fail. A long notice on a wall

 asks some of the questions residents have about RBKC and its TMO, a litany of failure

 

 

 

 The missing notices are on the boards of neighbouring estates

 People walk towards Grenfell Tower with flowers to pay their respects to those killed

Even in the wealthy streets there are some posters of the missing
