May 12th – 18th. We are very happy to be taking part in an event – You Only Die Once – on Wednesday 14th May, held at The Brighton Unitarian Church, New Road Brighton, which is a lovely venue in the centre of town.

It’s for anyone who has wanted to find out anything about end of life, death and bereavement. Including where to get support if you’re caring for someone, Planning a will, getting your affairs in order, gathering memories on film, planning a funeral, embalming and burial and giving people the opportunity to meet and talk to the people & organizations who can help to make all this happen.
We’ll be there from 1pm unti 5pm.

Wishing you a smooth and happy transition into Spring and all that is unfolding for you.

warmest good wishes

and Team
