On December 30, the Gjerdrum Municipality will mark one year since ten people died in the quick clay landslide. The Municipality will mark the day with a concert – it and hopes the village will be bathed in light.
One year after the landslide, Gjerdrum culture house will be open from 7 AM to 11 PM, and volunteers and employees from the Municipality and the church will serve waffles and coffee to people.
Gatherings are also set up around the Municipality, and all the inhabitants of Gjerdrum are encouraged to light candles in their driveways and in their courtyards, as well as to make heart decorations with messages.
“The hearts can be hung on trees in gardens or in a tree in front of the culture house. We hope the whole village will be bathed in light and hearts on this day,” the Municipality wrote in a press release.
There will also be a digital concert at 5:45 PM, the mayor will hold a speech, and candles will also be lit in memory of the dead. The church will open at 7 PM.
“We know that many will need to be together at this time, and if national rules allow us to do so, we will open up for that,” the Municipality wrote.
