VICTIMS of genocide will be remembered in Stroud later this month at a multi-faith service.

Every January the whole country remembers the horror of the Holocaust - in Stroud, Rodborough Tabernacle has developed the ceremony to include other genocides over the last 100 years as well.

The memorial service, which is at 2pm on Sunday, January 27, is open to all faiths, with Jews, Muslims, Bahais, Buddhists, Roman Catholics, Anglicans, Quakers, United Reformed church members and those who have no beliefs at all coming to the service.

This year the deputy Lord Lieutenant and two vice Lord Lieutenants will be coming, along with local MP David Drew and chairs of district and parish councils.
