In September, when the sun was still out in full, we got down to Henley Woodland Burial Ground to help custodian Andy tidy away the long grass. It was a great opportunity to spend time in amongst the trees and see some of the wildlife. It was great to see how beautiful the burial ground looked as the leaves begin to turn.
Our friend and celebrant Claire Turnham is hosting a number of workshops in October (24th, 25th, 26th, 27th, 30th and 31st) about home funerals.
There is something for everyone including introductory and more advanced options. There are also opportunities to gather together for a shared dinner and film evening or attend a Death Cafe as part of the Kicking the Bucket Festival. If you would like further information please call her on 07881 641583/01865 362984.
To register please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and Claire will send you details for payment. As she is holding the workshops in a family home there are limited places and we advise registering as soon as possible to secure a place.
