National Memorial Pollok Park wreath laying Silence to be held in honour of third Covid lockdown anniversary A wreath was laid following a minute's silence and a remembrance walk in Glasgow's Pollok Park. A silence to mark the lives of those lost during the Covid pandemic was held to mark the third anniversary of lockdown. People across Scotland take part in the minute’s silence, which was be held to remember loved ones at Scotland’s Covid Memorial in Glasgow’s Pollok Park as part of the National Day of Reflection. Alec Finlay, the poet and artist who created the memorial, was joined by Scotland’s Makar Kathleen Jamie, and lead a remembrance walk following the silence. A wreath was also laid in memory of those who were killed by the virus. Mr Finlay said the designs were inspired by the support ordinary people showed one another during the pandemic. The first phase of the memorial was opened in May last year by deputy first minister John Swinney in absence of Nicola Sturgeon who was then herself recovering from Covid. The remembrance event on today coincides with the completion of the memorial. Speaking at the time, Mr Finlay said: “It is an artwork made not by me, but by the people of Scotland.
