Remember with Light
On Sunday 4th November at 5pm people are invited to gather outside St Mary’s Parish Rooms where a Tree of Light will be illuminated with a short service of prayer, hymns and poetry.
Revd. Dr Mark Hart will lead the service with an address from The Mayor of Nantwich Councillor David Marren, poem read by the Deputy Mayor of Nantwich Councillor Arthur Moran and the choir of St Mary’s will be joining the proceedings.
Christmas is a time for families and friends, for celebrating and for giving; it also offers a chance to remember the loss of loved ones and to think about those less fortunate than ourselves.
On the lead up to the event, people are invited to make a donation of £5 to dedicate a bauble to a loved one or a special cause.
Donations can be made at Nantwich Civic Hall where you will be given the opportunity to fill a bauble with a name, message or items of your choice. These will then be hung on the tree of light until after the 12th night of Christmas, when the lights will be turned off and baubles removed. Baubles can then be collected from the Civic Hall after Monday 14th January 2019. (Baubles can be taken away to be filled and returned to be hung on the tree no later than Monday 29th October).
Nantwich Town Council are leading the way by dedicating the first bauble to the late Councillor Norma Simpson who sadly passed away earlier this year.
In addition, names can be also be listed on Nantwich Town Council Webpage of Remembrance.
The full cost of the tree is covered by Nantwich Town Council and all donations will be divided between the Mayor’s good causes Hope House, Nantwich Fire Cadets, Nantwich First Responders and St Mary’s Church.
People are encouraged to come along to the event on the 4th November to see all the memory baubles on the tree and reflect in memory of someone special.
