The group was set up in 1996 and
we now have five visitors. Our visitors are trained to offer a listening
ear and help to understand the stages of grief. The clergy pass
a referral to the team after the funeral, and after a period of
two weeks a letter is sent from the team to the next of kin, showing
what we can offer. After a further four weeks a personal contact
is made to see how things are and a visit can be arranged if required.
If you would like to contact us
earlier than this, we'd be delighted to hear from you.
The team also organises bi-monthly
teas at Christ the Vine on a Sunday afternoon. A visit to Frosts
Garden Centre is held annually in the summer which is most enjoyable.
In November we hold our annual memorial
service, which is much appreciated by all who attend.
