Opening Prayers


The Mayor’s Chaplain was not able to attend, therefore there were no opening prayers.


Council observed a minute’s silence to mark the 26 years since the genocide at Srebrenica in Bosnia and Herzegovina in which over 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were systematically murdered in what was described by the United Nations as ‘the worst crime on European soil since the Second World War’. 


The Deputy Mayor added that the silence was also in remembrance of Darren Gilder, Neighbourhood Warden and former Councillor Gilmore Fearon who had both recently passed away. 


Under this item a number of members paid tribute to Gil and to Darren by sharing some of their experiences of working alongside them.


Apologies for Absence.


Apologies for absence were received from Councillors Roxanne Ellis, Keneally, Lawrence and Murray.
