Next month sees the first memorial remembrance service held for Valentine’s Day at Harbour View Woodland Burial Ground.

The special service is being held in Harbour Lodge (next to the car park) on Sunday February 12 from 10.30am and everyone is welcome.

“The loss of a spouse or partner is often highlighted on dates that would have been a celebration or occasion for fun in the past. Valentine’s Day is no exception to this. We wanted to provide a focus for reflection with the opportunity to meet other people going through the same thing,” said Steven Tapper, Joint Managing Director at Tapper Funeral Service.

Coffee and cake will be available afterwards and there will be a voluntary collection for Friends of Forest Holme and Lewis Manning Hospice.
