Tree planting Day -9th March 2019

Tree planting day this year took place on Saturday the 9th March; we had many families and friends that were able to attend making this year one of our busiest ever, especially during the morning session so thank you for your patience if I was unable to attend to you immediately or spend much time with you.

The weather was glorious and warm- making this occasion even more special.

It was very uplifting seeing family and friends working together to plant each tree with care and love, whilst remembering and celebrating the lives of their loved ones.

One family member put this very eloquently in a thank you letter received: “Being part of so many families planting their trees and remembering their loved ones was very humbling, and comforting. I think that in time I will come to look back on Saturday as a very significant and important moment in the long healing process”.

Here are some photos of the day! 🙂

OUR STRAWBERRIES, CREAM AND FLOWER ART EVENT DUE TO TAKE PLACE THIS SATURDAY 28TH JULY HAS BEEN POSTPONED

Dear All,

We are sorry to announce that we have come to the difficult decision of postponing our Strawberries, Cream, Willow and Flower Art Event due to the extreme heat -especially as being a Natural Burial Ground there will be no running water available.

This Event will now take place in Mid September, running along side  a work party to clear weeds etc for those clients/friends that have expressed a wish to help in this way….

We have left our decision to the very last moment hoping that rain may have made an appearance at Deerton, but alas no!

Take care, keep well hydrated and hope to see you in September !!

Sian and Rebecca
