Photo: Riders of respect

30 May 2014


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
