THE Rector of Woolwich, the Revd Jesse van der Valk, was among
hundreds of motocyclists who rode past Woolwich Barracks on
Thursday last week, to mark the first anniversary of the murder of
Drummer Lee Rigby.
On Friday, Mr van der Valk described how the convoy had gathered
in Greenwich Park, and had passed the scene of the killing en route
to the barracks' parade ground.
The memorial ride was organised by Julia Stevenson, who runs
Ride of Respect, which organises rides to mark the loss of
servicemen and raise money for military charities.
Military riders were among those who took part in the journey,
as were members of Khalsa Bikers, a Sikh organisation. At the
barracks, two wreaths were laid
