The window was installed in 2002. According to the artist, Nicola Hopwood 'Following extensive consultation with families and friends of those who died and with church members, the window was designed to celebrate the young lives lost and to acknowledge directly the pain felt over many years by those closest to them. The symbolism suggests a journey from suffering (violet and purple) to triumph (red and gold) against a background of blue - healing and spirituality. The spiralling white shapes are free spaces for personal thoughts, memories and prayers'.
An event to mark the 30th anniversary of the fire is taking place at the Albany in Deptford on January 14th.
