Unfortunately, due to the current government restrictions, Lowestoft Town Council is unable to organise the annual commemorative event. However, a virtual event will be available to stream on the Town Council’s YouTube channel, Facebook and website at 10:00 AM on this day, marking the commemorative event and detailing Lowestoft’s unique history. December last year marked 82 years since the Kindertransport train arrived at Lowestoft Station, transporting mainly Jewish refugee children escaping persecution. The video developed by Joshua Freemantle (Life of Lowestoft) will feature a reading from Member of Parliament for Waveney, Peter Aldous, words and visuals from local historian Christopher Brooks and an address from the Mayor of Lowestoft, Councillor Alan Green.
