The Bishop of Woolwich, Rt Revd Christopher Chessun, will conduct a short ceremony to mark the planting of a tree to commemorate Gloria Burgos who died in her cafe - Goode Foods - opposite the gardens in Bermondsey Street.

'Gloria's Corner' is intended to be a permanent memorial to a much-loved member of the Bermondsey community who was brutally killed one sunny afternoon last September.

A maple tree has been chosen because it will be at its glorious best every autumn.

The money for the tree and a plaque for a nearby bench was raised from the proceeds of a 'carol-athon' two weeks before Christmas that involved non-stop carol singing by teams of local people from dawn till dusk.

All neighbours and friends of Gloria and her family have been invited to attend the tree planting ceremony.
