Faith at the Gate at Horse Hill on Sunday 1 November will remember species eradicated by, or in danger of extinction because of, extractive industries.
The event falls at All Souls, sometimes referred to as the Day of the Dead. And November is the month when Remembrance Day for Lost Species is marked by various events around the UK.
This is an inclusive event for people of all faiths and none, and a chance to reflect on the threat to our area and our world posed by the extraction of fossil fuels.
You are invited to join us in person or online, via Zoom.
You are invited to make a ‘prayer’ flag with your own thought, idea or image linked with lost species and extraction. If you aren’t coming in person, please send your flag to the address below and it will be taken for you and fixed to the gate. After the vigil, the prayer flags will be removed from the drill site gate and used to create a feature for other local events.
How to take part:
- Come to the gate at 5.30pm (or meet at monitoring camp at 5pm). Please wear a mask, bring a torch, dress for the weather and if possible, wear hi-viz. Make sure to keep 2 metres from anyone not in your household at all times.
- Join us online – email firstname.lastname@example.org for Zoom link)
- Send your flag to: Faith at the Gate, 24 Flanchford Road, Reigate, Surrey, RH2 8AB – we will make sure it is displayed.
