Ceremony invitation for victims of IRA bombing

More than 50 people who were injured in an IRA bomb attack which killed two children are being asked to take part in a ceremony to mark its 20-year anniversary.

Three-year-old Johnathan Ball and 12-year-old Tim Parry were both killed by two bombs placed in litter bins on the street in Warrington, Cheshire, on March 20 1993.

Now Warrington Borough Council and The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation are working together on a special commemorative event to mark this year’s anniversary.

The event is due to be held in Bridge Street on Saturday, March 16, followed by a “community reflection event” at the foundation’s Peace Centre in the afternoon.

Council deputy leader Mike Hannon said: “As part of the planning for this special event, the council and The Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Foundation for Peace are working together with people and organisations who were affected at the time in 1993 and who have played a part in helping Warrington to move forward during the past 20 years.

“There were 56 people injured on the day of the bombing and many more people affected.

“We would like to hear from them, including those who may have moved home or out of the area, so that we can invite them to the Bridge Street Commemoration and to the community reflection event at the Peace Centre.”

The 56 people who were injured are asked to contact: [email protected] or by post to Communications, 2013 Commemorative Event, Warrington Town Hall, Sankey Street.
