Summer is normally a time when happy memories are made but if you’ve lost a loved one, it can be a time when their loss feels even greater.

The Summer Memories service is an annual event where the local community are invited to remember loved ones.

This year’s poignant ceremony, which has now reached maximum capacity, will take place at the hospice on Saturday 25th June at 12pm. The celebration will feature beautiful readings, music and poetry, and provides a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together and remember the ones who hold a special place in our hearts. Although the ceremony has reached capacity, you are still able to support this year's Summer Memories appeal and receive a pack as detailed below.

Everybody who supports the appeal will receive an artificial rose, personalised with the names of those remembered, to display at home, a unique Summer Memories badge to treasure as a keepsake and a packet of wildflower seeds to plant in memory of those loved and lost.

During the service, everyone will be invited to place another rose in the hospice’s Memory Garden as part of a beautiful remembrance feature. A rose will be placed on behalf of those who cannot attend the ceremony so everyone remembered will be part of the display. The roses will remain on display throughout the summer months and you are welcome to visit between 9am-9pm daily.
