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.
People are invited to make a donation of £5 to dedicate a bauble on Nantwich’s Tree of Light 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. Those who have previously purchased a bauble, can return it to the Civic to be re-hung for a donation of £3.
In addition, names can be also be listed on Nantwich Town Council webpage of remembrance.
Nantwich Town Council are leading the way by dedicating the first bauble to the late John Brookshaw who sadly passed away earlier this year. John was well-known in the town as a butcher at his shop on Hospital Street, where he had worked for over 60 years.
The full cost of the tree is covered by Nantwich Town Council and all donations will be divided between the Mayor’s charities Save a Life Cheshire, Nantwich First Responders, The Royal British Legion and St Mary’s Church.
On Sunday 7th November at 5pm people are invited to gather outside St Mary’s Parish Rooms where the Tree of Light will be illuminated with a short service of prayer, hymns and poetry, giving you the chance to reflect on memories of someone special.
